Abstract

 Local Sagittal Alignment after Indirect Reduction and 2-Level Short-Segment Pedicle Screw Fixation of Thoracolumbar Burst Fractures

The treatment of thoracolumbar burst fractures with short-segment pedicle screw fixation alone has been associated with progressive loss of correction and instrumentation failure. However, some burst fractures can be treated successfully by this technique without correction loss or implant failure.

Keywords: Thoracolumbar burst fracture; Short-segment pedicle fixation; Indirect reduction; Local sagittal angle
