Complete traumatic fracture-dislocation L3-L4 of the lumbar spine



Complete traumatic fracture-dislocation L3-L4 of the lumbar spine



Pakistan Journal of Medical Sciences 29(5): 1283-1284



Complete traumatic fracture-dislocation of the lumbar spine is a rare spinal injury often leading to death. Surgical intervention is an effective treatment modality to decrease mortality. Our patient was a 16 year old boy who had a collision caused by fall from a construction material lifter. He was referred to our hospital with waist trauma. Later, the patient underwent posterior surgical decompression during which vertebral column restoration by long segment fixation was performed. After surgery there were no significant changes in the patient condition.
