Learning objectives: To review classifications of thoracolumbar fractures focusing in TLICS (Thoracolumbar Injury Classification and Severity Scale) illustrating with cases of our centre.

Background: The key point to determine the best therapy to a patient with spinal trauma is the mechanical stability. This is known as the ability to prevent the development of neurological damage and progressive deformity. Stability depends on bone and soft tissue integrity.   There have been plenty of cla[...]

Findings and procedure details: The spinal motion segment is the principle functional unit of the spine and consists of two vertebrae and the interconnecting soft tissues. It is compounded of an anterior and a posterior part: Anterior: two vertebral bodies, disc, common anterior ligament and common posterior ligament. It support[...]

Conclusion: Classifications of spinal fractures are suffering continous changes trying to achieve a model with a good anatomical description of injury and easy to apply on daily practise. The radiologist must have a wide knowledge of spine anatomy, knowing what to look for in every case to elaborate an useful[...]
