Agree with the C6 corpectomy and C5-7 fusion. Based on this one slice and appropriate anterior fixation, I see no need for posterior augmentation. Keep em coming, Sanjay!
if i were you, I would perform a corpectomy at c6, do a c5-7 fusion. Then, i would flip the patient and do c3-t1 corpectomy. You really should cross the c/t junction. let me know how it goes...watch out for that c7 pedicle screw
Isn't this C5 fx? And dislocation.
Not HIPAA - no patient information is present on the CT. Looks like a fx at C6!
ow-o-ow, not good, the vertabrae is upside down...I recommend surgery... oh and TM(below) this could be YOUR SPINE, or Mine, there is no private information devulged!
HIPPAA violation? Was permission to make public documented?
ok I see the C6 now. Good thing I'm not the Dr.
C6 flexion-compression (teardrop) injury with kyphosis. Anterior and posterior columns gone. Neuro status? These are often quads.
I hope there is no permanent spinal damage
lucky it wasn't c3/4/5. still, yikes.
