Zusammenfassung

Verletzungen der Wirbelsäule sind bei Kindern ausgesprochen selten. In der Literatur wird der Anteil kindlicher Wirbelsäulenverletzungen unter allen wirbelsäulenverletzten Patienten mit unter 2% angegeben [4], [12], [21]. Jungen sind dabei etwa doppelt so häufig betroffen wie Mädchen. Vorwiegend treten Wirbelsäulenverletzungen bei Kindern unter 5 sowie über 10 Jahren auf. Zu den führenden Unfallursachen zählen Stürze aus großer Höhe (50%) und Verkehrsunfälle (25%), gefolgt von Sportverletzungen und in seltenen Fällen dem „battered child syndrome“ [17], [21], [22], [26].
