«Déficit neurológico secundario debido a la inestabilidad no reconocida de columna vertebral en accidentes multitraumáticos: Un informe de tres casos.»
Folman, Yoram MD *; Gepstein, Reuven MD +
We present three cases of major multiple injuries in which delayed diagnosis of spinal instability resulted in neurologic deficit. The spinal injuries, once diagnosed, were treated by urgent surgical stabilization, which resulted in prompt and full recovery. A set of recommendations is proposed to prevent these potentially disastrous consequences.
