Abstract

High-energy spine traumas usually affect polytrauma patients and are taken care of in level trauma centers. Physicians in private practice mostly face patients suffering from porotic vertebral fractures, but may once in a while be confronted to patients with a non-porotic fracture after a heavy fall for example. In this article, we expose the management principles of thoracolumbar fractures as well as our opinion regarding the recent controversy around vertebroplasty.
