Abstract

Atlantoaxial subluxation has only rarely been reported in the cat. This is the third reported case of surgical correction, and a favourable prognosis was achieved in all three cases using a ventral technique. Cardiac arrest has been associated with both ventral and dorsal techniques, and is usually a fatal complication. Fortunately in this case the cat was successfully resuscitated and made a full recovery.
