Forced lordosis on t thoracolumbar junction
can correct coronal plane deformity in adolescents with double major curve pattern idiopathic scoliosis.
Palpation revealed moderate pain throughout her paraspinal muscles from cervicothoracic junction to thoracolumbar junction
, reproducing her chief complaint.
Conclusion: Thoracolumbar junction
injuries are common in young male patients.
Anterior hemivertebrae at L1 and L2 that were displaced posteriorly resulting in mild to moderate central stenosis and focal kyphosis at the thoracolumbar junction
SK was located at the thoracolumbar junction
(T10-T12), where the CM was involved in the compression caused by OLF.
4) Mechanical failure of the spinal column following high-energy trauma frequently occurs at the thoracolumbar junction
as a result of its transitional anatomy and biomechanical environment.
Motion and static palpation revealed segmental restrictions at the thoracolumbar junction
The neurological symptoms in burst fracture or osteoporotic vertebral collapse of thoracolumbar junction
Anterior approaches to thoracolumbar junction
of the spine by retroperitoneal, extrrapleural technique.
Most of the fractures were at the thoracolumbar junction
CONCLUSION:The thoracolumbar junction
is the most common level affected (45%), lumbar (20%), lumbosacral (20%) & sacral (10%).
The level of injury was thoracic spine (T5-T11) in 7, thoracolumbar junction
(T12-L1) in 24 and lumbar spine (L 2 -L 5) in 5 patients.
