STUDY DESIGN Systematic review. OBJECTIVES To review the various radiographic parameters currently used to assess traumatic thoracolumbar injuries, emphasizing the validity and technique behind each one, to formulate evidence-based guidelines for a standardized radiographic method of assessment of these fractures. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The treatment of thoracolumbar fractures is guided by various radiographic measurement parameters. Unfortunately, for each group of parameters, there… CONTINUE READING
