Lumbar Spine Fractures with Surgical Stabilization
Lumbar Spine Fractures with Surgical Stabilization

This stock medical exhibit begins with one large skeletal view of the lumbar spine illustrating the post-accident condition. This image clearly reveals the L4 burst fracture with subluxation and loss of normal spinal curvature. A sagittal view of the spine is also included to demonstrate the occlusion of the cauda equina. Next, the key steps of the lumbar stabilization and fusion procedure are included. These images show an open exposure of the lumbar spine through a posterior incision, an L4 laminectomy, removal of the fractured bone fragments and the placement of fusion hardware and bone grafts from L3 down to L5. Finally, a post-operative film print is included clearly revealing the fusion hardware in place.
