A prospective investigation of internal fixation of acute thoracic and lumbar spine fractures using pedicle screws and dynamic compression plates was performed. This article details the results of 23 patients who were followed for an average of 20 months. The indications for the procedure were an unstable fracture-dislocation below the eighth thoracic vertebra or low lumbar fractures that. The aim of this study was to investigate the method of posterior thoracolumbar vertebral pedicle screw reduction and fixation combined with vertebral bone implantation via the affected vertebral body under navigational aid for the treatment of thoracolumbar fractures. The efficacy of the procedure was also measured. Between June and March , posterior thoracolumbar vertebral pedicle.

Thoracic = having to do with the spine in the upper and middle back Lumbar = having to do with the spine in the lower back Spinal fusion is a procedure in which grafted (transplanted) bone grows together with bone already in the spinal column, forming one solid bone and stabilizing that section of spine.
Immobilization of the spine (usually with implants such as metallic screws and rods/plates, or interbody cages). Internal fixation serves to immobilize the spine while the bony bridge heals across the two vertebrae. Metal fixation of the spine is considered a temporary splint to the spine to hold it while it fuses.

To avoid the possibilities of complications of foreign body, the internal fixation has been removed, when the patient was totally free from any injury related symptoms (, 35, 38,).
By far the most common level of spinal injury is the thoracolumbar junction. In our experience (Magerl, ), 22% of the thoracic and 8% of the lumbar injuries had significant neurologic involvement.
About 9% of all thoracic and lumbar fractures required surgical intervention with different by: The book introduces the using of navigation assisted robotic system in orthopedic surgery. The system is based on real-time 3D navigation. In the first part, it covers spine surgery, which includes pedicle screw fixation on cervical, thoracic, lumbar spine.

Introduction. Thoracolumbar (TL) fractures are the second most common fractures after hip fractures. 1,2 At the TL junction (TL2), TL fractures comprise three-quarters of total spinal injuries.
3 Most TL fractures occur at a young age, motor vehicle accidents being the most common cause. The incidence of these fractures is increased in the elderly and their occurrence is one of the markers Author: Amer Sebaaly, Amer Sebaaly, Maroun Rizkallah, Guillaume Riouallon, Zhi Wang, Pierre Emmanuel Moreau.

Vertebral fractures can be caused by direct or indirect trauma and are more likely to occur in patients with decreased bone density (osteoporosis, osseous metastases).
Fractures may be stable or, if there is a risk of damage to the spinal cord, sis involves a detailed neurological exam and imaging (x-ray, CT, etc). Stable fractures can be treated conservatively with analgesics.
Get this from a library. Internal fixation of thoracic and lumbar spine fractures. [Walter Dick]. CHAPTER Basic Principles of Spinal Internal Fixation Steven D. Chang, Neil R. Crawford, Volker K.H. Sonntag, Curtis A. Dickman In the spine there are 28 vertebrae: 7 cervical vertebrae, 12 thoracic vertebrae, 5 lumbar vertebrae, and 4 sacral vertebrae that typically exist as a single fused unit.
Abstract. The cammon implants for internal fixation of thoracic and lumbar spine fractures act as a four point bending system. As they have a mobile link to one vertebra and need a second bony support on the lamina of the next vertebra on each side of the afflicted area, they work only if at least 5 vertebrae (better 7) are included in the by: 5.
Internal fixation is often required when the fracture is unstable and may include using metal screws, rods, and cages to stabilise the spine. A thoracic fracture can result in damage to the spinal cord causing muscles weakness, loss of sensation and reduced functional ability with everyday tasks.

Kabins Indications and Techniques for the AO. Spinal fractures can vary widely in severity. While some fractures are very serious injuries that require emergency treatment, other fractures can be the result of bones weakened by osteoporosis.
Most spinal fractures occur in the thoracic (midback) and lumbar spine (lower back) or at the connection of the two (thoracolumbar junction). The aim of this study was to measure the loads on internal fixation devices for selected body positions and movements during physical therapy.
Subjects and Methods. Loads on an internal spinal fixation device were measured in 10 patients with degenerative instability or compression fractures using a telemeterized implant. by: Percutaneous Internal Fixation of Thoracolumbar Spine Fractures Article in Topics in Spinal Cord Injury Rehabilitation 12(2) October with 33 Reads How we measure 'reads'.
Thoracic and lumbar spine fractures are the most common injuries of the spine. An exaggerated curvature (kyphosis) at the end of treatment may predispose to later back pain and a poor functional the nerve root or spinal cord is damaged, partial or complete loss of sensory and motor function in the legs, and urinary and faecal incontinence may result.
