Traumatic spondyloptosis of the thoracic spine is an uncommon injury. In most cases, spondyloptosis is confined to one vertebral body, whereas double-level spondyloptosis is extremely rare. Most patients who sustain traumatic spondyloptosis immediately become paraplegic, but in some cases neurological function is preserved. If this occurs, it is due to detachment of the pedicles from the corresponding vertebral body, resulting in spontaneous decompression of neural elements. Herein, the authors… 
Traumatic Lateral Spondyloptosis: Case Series.
TLDR
Lateraloptosis is difficult to treat, and the aim of surgery is to stabilize the spine, but the scarcity of proper rehabilitation centers results in high mortality and morbidity.
Novel method for stepwise reduction of traumatic thoracic spondyloptosis
TLDR
Early spinal realignment and stabilization following spondyloptosis at the T11/T12 level resulted in some improvement in sensory function without resolution of motor plegia, and a novel, safe, step-wise, spinal reduction method employing an inflatable beanbag was proposed.
Traumatic Lumbosacral Spondyloptosis in a Pediatric Patient: Case Report and Literature Review
TLDR
Based on the data reviewed, the neurological status at admission might be a valid predictor of outcome and Pedicle screws are a safe and reliable procedure for stable fixation of the spine in these cases.
Traumatic thoracic spine spondyloptosis treated with spondylectomy and fusion
TLDR
A patient who following a fall sustained a T7/T 8 spondyloptosis resulting in paraplegia treated with a single posterior T8 spondylectomy with T5–T11 instrumented fusion.

Complete thoracolumbar fracture-dislocation with intact neurologic function: Explanation of a novel cord saving mechanism
TLDR
The prognosis for complete recovery with preplanned surgical intervention in thoracolumbar injuries affecting all three columns but with normal neurologic function is promising based on images, plastic models and 3D simulated model based on digital images.
Traumatic dorsal spondyloptosis of upper thoracic spine: case report and novel open reduction technique.
TLDR
A novel and effective method of open reduction utilising horizontally oriented temporary rods facilitating controlled, sequential sagittal distraction and unlocking, reversal of anteroposterior shear and restoration of alignment is described.
Kyphosis and canal compromise due to refracturing of an L1 cemented vertebra managed with posterior surgery alone
TLDR
The safety/efficacy of utilizing a purely posterior approach (e.g., including L1 corpectomy, reconstruction of the anterior column, and posterior fusion: pVCR) in the management of a repeated fracture of a cemented L1 vertebra resulting in kyphosis and canal compromise is presented.
Intraoperative tension pneumothorax during posterior vertebral column resection in a child with congenital scoliosis
TLDR
In patients undergoing pVCR, if the surgical team is faced with unexplained hemodynamic instability and increased airway resistance, a TPT should be strongly suspected and appropriately managed.

TLDR
A 19-year-old paraplegic woman was admitted with a chronic deformity of the thoracolumbar spine due to a telescoped posterior dislocation of L1 on T12, which had occurred 8 months earlier, and this is the first documented case in which the spondylectomy was performed in a single block including the vertebral body and posterior arch in the same piece.
Traumatic spondyloptosis of the thoracolumbar spine.
TLDR
In the present series, a patient with coronal-plane spondyloptosis presented with preserved neurological function, which may be due to the result of differences in resultant neurological compression due to displacement mechanics compared with sagittally displaced injuries.
Traumatic Spondyloptosis of L4
TLDR
Posterior decompression, reduction, internal fixation, and fusion is effective and dependable for traumatic L4–L5 spondyloptosis.
Traumatic spondyloptosis of the dorsal spine with incomplete neurological deficit.
TLDR
A severe case of lateral dislocation in the thoracic region in which the neurological lesion was incomplete, despite gross deformity is reported, the first case that is found of such severe injury occurring without completely severing the cord.
Treatment of Complete Fracture-dislocation of Thoracolumbar Spine
TLDR
Although difficult, satisfactory reduction of complete lumbar fracture-dislocation can be achieved through pedicle instrumentation and intraoperative traction is necessary for the reduction procedure.
Surgical technique. Technical notes on reduction of thoracic spine fracture dislocation.
TLDR
It has been the experience that the use of side-opening pedicle screws facilitates reduction to help achieve the surgical goals previously enumerated.
Traumatic thoracic spinal fracture dislocation with minimal or no cord injury. Report of four cases and review of the literature.
TLDR
In cases in which bilateral pedicle fractures occur at the site of significant thoracic subluxation and/or translation, preservation of the spinal canal and spinal Cord neurological function can rarely occur when both the lamina and spinal cord do not dislocate along with the anterior VBs.
