Despite a sizable amount of literature, the optimal management of thoracolumbar fractures remains controversial and many authors assume the existence of disc lesions in Magerl type A fractures. The purpose of the study was to assess the intervertebral discs in these fractures at the time of trauma. The hypothesis was that there was no change in shape and signal intensity of the discs initially.

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a rheumatologic condition that affects the axial skeleton. Structural changes render the spine susceptible to fractures, which can be treated operatively or non-operativ...
The Morel-Lavallée lesion (MLL) is a closed degloving injury caused by traumatic separation of the subcutaneous tissue from the underlying fascia, without a break in the overlying skin. We present tw...
BACKGROUND Fractures of the thoracolumbar (TL) spine represent 90% of all spinal fractures, followed by cervical and lumbar spine fractures. This study aimed to create fracture maps of the traumatic t...
Fractures of the odontoid represent as much as 20% of cervical spine fractures in adults, and they are the most common spine fracture in patients over 80 years of age. Despite their prevalence, the ma...
In older patients the optimal treatment strategy of complex bone and soft tissue injuries represents a new challenge. Currently, two treatment approaches are in competition. Whereas the amputation of ...
The thoracolumbar segment fractures are the most frequent along the spine, and surgical treatment is indicated in unstable fractures. Surgical treatment has been performed through the post...
In patients presenting with Type A and Type B1, B2 thoracolumbar fractures, there is a lack of evidence demonstrating similar outcomes between patients treated with percutaneous pedicle sc...
Although long-segment posterior spinal fixation might provide more rigid fixation, the procedure increases perioperative morbidities in the elderly. The present study reviews the results o...
To validate the safety and effectiveness of minimally invasive posterior percutaneous pedicle screw fixation in acute thoracolumbar vertebral fractures with simple anterior spinal column i...
Efficacy of Posterior Short-segment Pedicle Instrumentation Associated With Fracture Level Screws for Thoracolumbar Burst Fractures, Does the Order of Pedicle Screws Placement at Injured Level Affect?——a Study Protocol of Randomised Controlled Trial
Controversies persist for the best treatment of burst fractures of the thoracolumbar spine. Posterior fixation alone may be adequate to achieve and maintain burst fractured reduction. Addi...
A type of juvenile osteochondrosis affecting the fibrocartilaginous disc (INTERVERTEBRAL DISK) in the thoracic or thoracolumbar region of the SPINE. It is characterized by a forward concave SPINAL CURVATURE or KYPHOSIS.
Degenerative changes in the INTERVERTEBRAL DISC due to aging or structural damage, especially to the vertebral end-plates.
The dissolving of the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS, the semi-gelatinous tissue of a displaced INTERVERTEBRAL DISC. It is usually achieved by the direct injection of a proteolytic enzyme, especially CHYMOPAPAIN, into the herniated disc.
Fractures of the short, constricted portion of the thigh bone between the femur head and the trochanters. It excludes intertrochanteric fractures which are HIP FRACTURES.
Fractures of the FEMUR HEAD; the FEMUR NECK; (FEMORAL NECK FRACTURES); the trochanters; or the inter- or subtrochanteric region. Excludes fractures of the acetabulum and fractures of the femoral shaft below the subtrochanteric region (FEMORAL FRACTURES).
