Spinal trauma fixations

Fast facts on spinal trauma fixations:

  • Spinal trauma means injury to spinal column making it inadequate to support normal loading.
  • Can also be associated with spinal cord injury causing paralysis.
  • Treatment is by fixing the spine with rods and screws and removing compression on spinal cord.
  • After spinal fixation, patients can resume normal load bearing and slowly get back to normal function.
