Main causes of cervical fracture and dislocation: flexion, extension, vertical compression, shearing, rotation and other violence

1. Causes

This violent mechanism of fracture and dislocation is not essentially different from flexion cervical spine injury, but its violent effect is stronger, the damage caused is greater, and the clinical symptoms are more serious. Commonly seen in flexion injuries, compression fractures of the vertebral body and facet joint dislocations occur almost simultaneously. It can also be seen in vertical violence. At the same time as causing a burst fracture of the vertebral body, the facet joints have subluxation or interlocking signs. This type of complete injury of the cervical spine is usually more severe, and most of them have cervical spinal cord injury. A small number of "lucky injuries" with a wide sagittal diameter are exceptions.
