Abstrakt: BACKGROUND: Most of the physician's attention during spinal surgery, when using wires and screws, is toward the avoidance of injuries of critical structures (nerves and vessels). When such wires are broken during surgery, the most important point is to take them out safely or, if it is impossible, to leaf them in secure place and follow the patient closely. Migrations of broken Kirschner wire (K-wire) are well known in literature; however, to the best of our knowledge, migration of a fractured K-wire during anterior atlantoaxial fixation of cervical spine has not been reported in the literature. CASE DESCRIPTION: We report a case in which a fractured K-wire was imbedded in the lateral mass of C1 for 3 years and then migrated to endanger the dominant right vertebral artery. By using posterior approach and drilling right part of posterior arch of C1, we manage to secure the vertebral artery. The broken K-wire was extracted successfully. In our case, with optimal follow-up, the burred wire inside hard bone was moved in delayed fashion to come out of the bone, grooving the dominant vertebral artery. CONCLUSIONS: Our recommendation is to inspect the K-wire before using it and to try retrieve as much as possible when removing it.
