Thoracic Spine Fractures Are Rarely Identified by Chest Radiographs

Viernes, Julio 10, 2020

Most of these fractures can be treated conservatively and are not associated with neurologic sequelae.
To better understand the rate and sequelae of thoracic spine fractures identified in the modern era of liberal computed tomography (CT) scanning of trauma patients, researchers performed a secondary analysis of data from the NEXUS Chest CT study. Patients were blunt trauma victims aged >14 years who received chest imaging (radiographs, CT, or both) at nine trauma centers from 2011 to 2014.
