Abstract Share this page

Abstract Thoracolumbar spinal injuries are classified on the basis of the mechanical mode of failure of the vertebral bodies. The fractures are presented in seven categories. Emphasis is placed on the injury component causing the fracture patterns. The choice of instrumentation for surgery is based on the surgeon's understanding of these injury patterns.
