Fractures and dislocations with complete lateral displacement of the spine at the lumbar and thoracic levels are some of the most severe types of thoracolumbar trauma. They are usually caused by high-energy trauma and accompanied by extreme, life-threatening injuries and neurological deficits that vary in severity, which may delay operative intervention. It is often difficult to reduce such a complex fracture-dislocation because of the force that the muscles exert on the bone and the injured part of the spinal cord. Read More

Image Guidance to Aid Pedicle Screw Fixation of a Lumbar Fracture-Dislocation Injury in a Toddler.

World Neurosurg 2017 Sep 12;105:1041.e15-1041.e17. Epub 2017 Jul 12.

Department of Neurosurgery, Hofstra-Northwell School of Medicine, Hampstead, New York, USA.

Background: Pedicle screw fixation of the lumbar spine in children age <2 years is particularly challenging, as successful cannulation of the small pedicle dimensions requires a high level of precision and there are no implants specifically designed for the infant spine. Image-guided navigation is commonly used in adult spinal surgery and may be particularly helpful for the placement of spinal screws in areas where the bony anatomy is small and/or anatomically complex, as in the upper cervical area.

Purpose: Conventional radiography is frequently performed in pediatric patients in whom fractures and dislocations are suspected. However, until now, the rate of positive findings of the most commonly performed radiographic examinations in pediatric patients is unknown. The aim of this study was to evaluate the number of positive findings in the 20 most frequently requested standard radiographic examinations in pediatric patients in a level 1 trauma center systematically.

Impact of surgical correction of a U-shaped sacral fracture on sagittal spino-pelvic alignment: Regarding one case.

Neurochirurgie 2016 Dec 16;62(6):344-348. Epub 2016 Nov 16.

Unité de chirurgie du Rachis, université Aix-Marseille, CHU Timone, 264, rue Saint-Pierre, 13005 Marseille, France. Electronic address:

U-shaped sacral fractures are uncommon and are mostly the consequence of a high-energy kinetic trauma. The sacrum is a crucial element for sagittal alignment in a standing position as it determines the value of the pelvic incidence, which is a fixed and unchanging parameter for a given individual. We report the case of a 21-year-old man who underwent corrective surgery for a type II U-shaped fracture of the sacrum (according to the Roy-Camille classification), associated with a S1-S2 dislocation and sacral kyphosis that modified the patient's pelvic incidence.

Up in Arms: Bilateral Luxatio Erecta Fracture-Dislocations.

Am J Orthop (Belle Mead NJ) 2016 Sep/Oct;45(6):E328-E330

Department of Emergency Medicine, Sutter Health, Alta Bates Summit Medical Center, Oakland, CA.

Inferior dislocation (luxatio erecta) is the most uncommon form of dislocation of the glenohumeral joint. The chance that a person endures the specific direction of forces to dislocate both shoulders simultaneously makes bilateral luxatio erecta even more uncommon. In this article, we report the case of a man who sustained bilateral luxatio erecta when he jumped from a falling scaffold and tried grabbing onto another structure. Read More

Temporary Percutaneous Pedicle Screw Stabilization Without Fusion of Adolescent Thoracolumbar Spine Fractures.

J Pediatr Orthop 2016 Oct-Nov;36(7):701-8

Department of Orthopaedic Surgery, Saint Louis University, Saint Louis, MO.

Background: Pediatric spine trauma often results from high-energy mechanisms. Despite differences in healing potential, comorbidities, and length of remaining life, treatment is frequently based on adult criteria; ligamentous injuries are fused and bony injuries are treated accordingly. In this study, we present short-term results of a select group of adolescent patients treated using percutaneous pedicle screw instrumentation without fusion. Read More

Complete Fracture-Dislocation of the Thoracolumbar Spine with No Critical Neurological Deficit: A Case Report.

J Med Invest 2016 ;63(1-2):122-6

Department of Orthopedics, Mitoyo General Hospital.

Fractures at the thoracolumbar junction are the most common spinal column fractures. Among type C fractures in the Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen Spine Classification, cases with complete fracture-dislocations of the spinal column often result in a critical neurological deficit despite surgical treatment. We present a case of an 18-year-old man who had a complete fracture-dislocation of the T12 vertebral body and multiple injuries following high-energy trauma but no critical neurological deficits.

Pediatric isthmic spondylolisthesis showing radiologic evidence of slippage after physis injury.

J Pediatr Orthop B 2017 Jul;26(4):388-392

Department of Orthopedics, Institute of Biomedical Sciences, Tokushima University Graduate School, Tokushima, Japan.

The pathogenesis of slippage in pediatric spondylolisthesis is still unclear, although epiphyseal injury may account for many cases based on preclinical studies. However, no reports have described a pediatric case of isthmic spondylolisthesis showing radiologic evidence of epiphyseal injury. We report such evidence in a 13-year-old boy with low-back pain.
