Title: Role of conservative treatment of cervical spine injuries
Authors: LAUWERYNS, Philippe
Issue Date: 2010
Publisher: SPRINGER
Citation: EUROPEAN SPINE JOURNAL, 19. p. 23-26
Abstract: Conservative treatment still has an important role to play, despite the increasing possibilities of surgical treatment. Treatment starts at the site of trauma. Transportation and immobilisation in braces are discussed. Skeletal skull traction can be used for realignment and reduction, and eventually used in halo-vest treatment. The advantages and disadvantages of these different treatment options are discussed.
