Biomechanically the thoracolumbar spine is predisposed to a higher incidence of spinal injuries. Computed tomography provides adequate bony detail for assessing spinal stability while magnetic resonance imaging shows injuries to soft tissues (posterior.

Part of the AAOS 'Monograph' series, this title offers orthopaedic surgeons detailed information and instruction relating to thoracolumbar fractures. This article reviews the conflicting results and recommendations for management of thoracolumbar fractures of currently published reports.

Specifically, it addresses issues regarding evaluation of stability, indications for operative treatment, timing of surgery, surgical approach, and fusion by: 5. Additional Physical Format: Online version: Management of thoracolumbar fractures.

Rosemont, IL: American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, © The thoracolumbar spine represents a unique system from a skeletal as well as neurological standpoint. The rigid rib-bearing thoracic spine articulates with the more mobile lumbar spine at the thoracolumbar junction (T10 - L2), the site of most by: Traumatic fractures of the thoracolumbar spine, especially the thoracolumbar junction (T10–L2), are the most common fractures of the spinal column.

The transition from the less mobile thoracic spine with its associated ribs and sternum to the more dynamic lumbar spine makes this an area of great biomechanical by: The Frankel scale for the recovery of neurologic function between the anterior and posterior approaches in the treatment of thoracolumbar fractures.

Analysis of complications after surgery In 8 studies, patients were included, in which patients underwent the anterior approach and underwent the posterior by:   The most common fractures of the spine are associated with the thoracolumbar junction.

The goals of treatment of thoracolumbar fracture are leading to early mobilization and rehabilitation by restoring mechanical stability of fracture and inducing neurologic recovery, thereby enabling patients to return to the by: 2.

The most common cause of pediatric spine trauma is motor vehicle accidents (even when seat belts are used), which lead to 33% to 58% of all injuries. Fractures of the thoracic and lumbar spine may result from high-energy trauma, such as a: Car or motorcycle crash; Fall from height; Sports accident; Violent act, such as a gunshot wound; Many times, these patients have additional serious injuries that require rapid treatment.

The spinal cord may also be injured, depending on the severity of the fracture. e management of thoraco lumbar fractures is highly controver sial, and there is no generally accepted treatmen t method [3,4]. e main point of discussion is the stability of the v ertebral. Thoracolumbar Fractures.

General Principles and Indication for Conservative Treatment of Thoracolumbar Spine Fractures. This spine surgery lecture discusses the conservative treatment of thoracolumbar spine fractures.

In it, the stabilising factors of thoracolumbar spine are looked at, and the principles of conservative management. The thoracolumbar junction (TL1) is involved in 15% of cases. It is a fragile area, concerned by half of all thoracic and lumbar spine fractures, at the junction between the relatively immobile thoracic kyphosis and the more mobile lumbar by:   The simplicity of the Thoracolumbar Injury Classification and Severity Score system serves as a strength and a potential weakness of its application.

Fernando. Thoracolumbar spinal fracture classification systems are numerous and represent attempts by various authors to create systems that allow uniform and reproducible classification and description of thoracolumbar fractures which in turn can help with treatment decision making and prognostication.
