Abstract

Traumatic cervical spondyloptosis is a 3-column fracture-dislocation resulting in a highly unstable spine requiring urgent reduction, stabilization, and fixation. Since its occurrence is not that common, there are a lot of controversies concerning its management. A holistic approach has been proposed regarding the management of traumatic cervical spondyloptosis.
