Conference paper


Cervical spine fracture, dislocation or fracture dislocation is found more and more often with the increase of accidents or occupational accidents. Although trauma of the vertebra is associated in 80% without neurologic deficit, in cervical trauma it is not uncommon to find spinal cord injuries. In my series, 45 cases (60%) among 75 cervical injuries were associated with spinal cord injury.
