Posterior ligamentous complex (PLC) components have an orderly sequence of rupture. However, it is still unclear how many structures have to be damaged to consider it disrupted. We aim to establish imaging criteria, which can define the complex as competent or incompetent. Prospective study of 74 consecutive vertebral acute traumatic fractures, using X-rays and MRI scan (FS-T2-w/STIR sequences). We analyzed the association between MRI signal (intact, edema, disruption) of each PLC component… CONTINUE READING
