unlimited quantity and immediate availability of rhBMP-2 make it useful in certain pediatric spine applications, although its cost may be prohibitive in some circumstances. Previous studies of pediatric occipitocervical and atlantoaxial constructs had reported much higher fusion rates (around 98% to 100%). 7 , 11 , 13 , 16 In recent comparisons of fusion rates following occcipitocervical and atlantoaxial instrumented fusion using a large clinical series and administrative data sets, Mazur et al. 15 and Hankinson et al., respectively, reported higher rates of fusion
