Epidemiology, Pathomechanics and Neurodeficit in Spine Injuries Lecture Thumbnail

Lecture: Epidemiology, Pathomechanics and Neurodeficit in Spine Injuries

DOI 10.28962/01.3.116

This spine surgery lecture covers epidemiology, pathomechanics and neurological deficits in spinal injuries. It discusses the frequency, levels affected, and causes of spinal injuries according to the available literature. It is interesting to learn if social or economic status influences the epidemiology. The pathomorphology is addressed here, explaining the influence of different vectors and axes in producing different injuries, allowing the reader to understand the multiple bone deformities after trauma. Finally, the mechanisms and types of Spinal Cord Injury are discussed, highlighting the importance of an adequate neurological evaluation.
