Points & Pearls Excerpt

  • In the United States, some 60% of patients with cervical spine injury have complete or incomplete tetraplegia.3,4
  • Unstable fractures are those in which bone deformity is likely to increase and may lead to development or worsening of spinal cord compromise.6
  • Spinal injuries involving the anterior column tend to be stable; injuries tend to be unstable if multiple columns or the posterior column are injured or disrupted.
  • Spinal cord injury (SCI) may occur without spinal fracture; the most clinically important is acute traumatic central cord syndrome, which is typically associated with elderly patients with pre-existing spinal stenosis.
