Abstract

The various syndromes of spinal cord injury are increasingly recognized. Unique fracture patterns are associated with particular mechanisms of injury. The initial management of spinal cord injury begins at the site of injury, and continues in the emergency department. Careful clinical examination and appropriate radiographic evaluation are essential in the diagnosis and treatment planning for spinal cord injury patients. The authors reviewed the most common types of spinal fractures and treatment options, and discuss the long-term complications of spinal cord injury and further possible treatment options.
