ailments of cervical vertebrae

is this page geared towards humans only, or also animals?

The derivation of the dens or odontoid process is "tooth." I'm not sure what language it's from, though. Also, the dens is what forms the pivot. This is not really made clear in the article.

Landmarks are ill-defined[edit]

I'm looking at netters right now, and the landmarks specified in the wiki page are either a) wrong, or b) badly defined (how do you define the "level" of the vertabrae? is it at the middle of the body of the vertebrae? Using this definition, C4 is at the hyoid). Could someone please look this over. You can find the image here: -- (talk) 05:11, 1 November 2009 (UTC)


Although the introduction of this article disusses cervical vertebrae of mammals in general, and even other animals, the body of the article is entirely confined to humans. Should probably decide if this article is to be human-only and if so, edit it accordingly, leaving the reptiles (etc.) out.

Proposed merge[edit]

I have proposed a merge between the articles on C3-7 and this page, as I believe that this would improve the overall quality of this page, enhance its readability, and hopefully lead to more quality editing. If needed, these articles could be expanded at a later date. --LT910001 (talk) 07:14, 18 December 2013 (UTC)


Edit warring?[edit]

I've noticed some edit warring in the history that happened on 29 December between Dschslava and However, it's stopped now (possibly due to the 3RR?). Hdjensofjfnen (Is something wrong?) 22:30, 22 February 2016 (UTC)

Proposed merge with Cervical degenerative changes and grading[edit]

Too less content in current form , to even be a stub. Will be good to either expand it here or better , make it a section of the main article Devopam (talk) 13:44, 14 December 2016 (UTC)  Done
