Abstract

A RARE PRESENTATION OF A CONCOMITANT LUMBAR SPINE BURST FRACTURE WITH A DISTAL CORPUS STERNI FRACTURE DUE TO A FLEXION DISTRACTION INJURY

Author(s):Ravi Kumar TV, GadiDaksh, Jain Vinay, Rangaswamy BT

Sternum fractures are a rare entity and occur either due to direct trauma or indirectly associated to a flexion compression injury. Earlier literatures used to describe the association of sternum fractures with upper thoracic vertebral fractures. To the best of our knowledge very few cases have been described in literature with concomitant lumbar vertebral fracture with associated sternum fracture. We hereby report a rare presentation of a flexion distraction injury leading to a concomitant sternum fracture with a L1 vertebral burst fracture.
