Closed Reduction Technique and Stabilization of Traumatic Fracture Dislocation L5-S1

Closed Reduction Technique and Stabilization of Traumatic Fracture Dislocation L5-S1

Traumatic fracture dislocation and spondyloptosis L5-S1 is a rare injury. It indicates fatal trauma associated with other injuries. In many occasions these injuries missed in initial examination and hence many of the cases reported were operated late. We report a case of L5-S1 spondyloptosis diagnosed and operated in acute stage. Reduction has been achieved with closed manipulation and later patient had 360° stabilization in stages. Closed reduction achieved by exaggerating the angulation followed by distraction in line of angulation and reduction of dislocation by pelvic rotation.
