Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

A rare complete lateral dislocation of the thoracic spine with preservation of neurologic function is reported. Anatomic reduction was obtained using an anterior approach and Harrington distraction rods for reduction followed by a broad plate and subsequent posterior segmental fixation and fusion. Long-term followup showed an excellent result.
