[Management of spine injuries in polytraumatized patients].


The management of spine injuries in polytraumatized patients remains a great challenge for the diagnostic procedures and institution of appropriate treatment by integrating spinal trauma treatment into the whole treatment concept as well as following the treatment steps for the injured spine itself. The established concept of "damage control" and criteria regarding the optimal time and manner for operative treatment of the injured spine in the polytrauma setting is presented and discussed.
