Abstract:   (4252 Views)
This is a retrospective study of the treatment of 68 cases of spine injuries to make an objective assessment of clinical and radiologic results and to introduce the good results of C.D segmental instrumentation. 68 patients, with an average follow up of 36 months, who suffered from thoracolumbar, lumbar and cervical spine fractures and dislocations, underwent surgical and nonsurgical treatment according to the clinical and radiological datas. Patients with more than 50 percent of loss of body height, more than 50 percent of canal compromise and neurologic deficits underwent surgery. With the C.D instrumentation, it was possible to provide solid, short internal fixation with restoration of the sagittal profile without loss of correction. For patients eith heavy works, over-weights and especially, shattered vertebral bodies, to prevent loss of correction, combined posterior and anterior interbody fusion is highly recommended.
