This stock medical exhibit shows a post-accident spinal fracture with surgical fusion in a series of illustrations. The first illustration shows a mid-sagittal view of the spine, indicating an area of enlargement. The second illustration is an interpretation of an MRI film, showing a T12 thoracic burst fracture with 70% spinal cord compromise in a sagittal view of the thoracolumbar spine. The third image is an MRI film showing the burst fracture. The fourth illustration is the first step in the procedure, showing the creation of two incisions, one in the thoracic region and one in the right posterior iliac crest. The fifth illustration shows the placement of fixation rods and hooks into the thoracic spine to stabilize the T12 fracture. The sixth illustration shows the burring of the pedicles of T12 and the removal of the laminae of T11. The seventh illustration shows the placement of the bone graft to complete the fusion.
