OBJECTIVE: To explore the clinical characteristics and new treatment for syndrome of craniocerebral-cervical vertebral injury. METHODS: The clinical data of 52 patients with head injury accompanied by neck injury were analyzed retrospectively. RESULTS: Craniocerebral injury could result in damage to cervical vertebrae, muscles, vessels and nerves, and even cause vertebral artery injury, which may lead to insufficient blood-supply of vertebral-basal artery. All patients were treated with cervical vertebral traction and the results were good. CONCLUSIONS: Acute craniocerebral injury with symptom of insufficient blood-supply of vertebral-basal artery, evident neurosis and atlas-axis half-dislocation in X-ray should be treated by cervical vertebral traction, which will yield better outcome.
