Burst Fracture

This is a 55 year old female that sustained a trauma. She came to the emergency room with back pain and some bladder dysfunction. A CAT scan revealed that this patient sustained a burst fracture. The fragments were clearly pinching her spinal cord on the MRI.

She received a posterior spinal fusion with instrumentation. She is ambulatory and has full function of her bladder again.
