Subaxial cervical trauma surgical approach and neurological outcome

Author(s): Alexandrina Nikova, Theodossios Birbilis and Varvara Chatzipaulou
Abstract: Objective: Subaxial cervical injury regards one of ten patients with spine trauma. The management of the injuries is either conservative or surgical. In this analysis we are dealing with the surgical approach and the postoperative neurological outcome.
Methods: We performed a retrospective analysis of the literature between 1997 and 2018. The included articles were analyzed with statistical program.
Results: The results suggest that the three available approaches are unequal regarding the neurological recovery, while the recovery itself depends also on the age group of the participants – a fact, suggesting the need of reevaluation of the therapy and its possibilities.
Conclusion: Subaxial cervical spine trauma is a complex issue with a new insight of management, which should be considered in the future.
