Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Spine trauma is a devastating clinical condition that affects many people annually on a worldwide basis. Management of spinal trauma has become much more surgically oriented with advances in stabilization techniques over the past two decades. The degree of injury to the spinal cord dictates the prognosis of the patient in cervical and thoracolumbar trauma. Traumatic spinal cord injury is a major area of socioeconomic burden and, as such, is a burgeoning area of ongoing research interest.
