Both translational and rotational deformity of the midthoracic spine makes transection of the cord almost inevitable due to the confined dimensions of the cord and spinal canal. Even though associated fractures of posterior elements are frequently seen, they seldom result in neural sparing. The case of a 24-year-old man who sustained a severe rotational fracture-dislocation of T9/T10 with considerable… CONTINUE READING
