Considering the high rate of mortality and permanent disability related to vertebral traumas, an early and detailed diagnosis of the trauma and subsequently an immediate and effective intervention are crucial. Cervical vertebral injury classifications guide treatment choice through a severity grade based on radiological information.

Abstract

Considering the high rate of mortality and permanent disability related to vertebral traumas, an early and detailed diagnosis of the trauma and subsequently an immediate and effective intervention are crucial. Cervical vertebral injury classifications guide treatment choice through a severity grade based on radiological information. The purpose of the present study was to define which imaging classification system could provide the best morphological and clinical-surgical correlations for cervical spine traumas.
