Burst fracture Specialist

Burst fracture treatment

The London Spine Unit specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of Burst fracture. Our Specialists are trained in the recognition of symptoms caused by Burst fracture. The best investigation for this condition is an MRI scan as this shows the structural damage that can be caused by Burst fracture.

If you have been diagnosed with Burst fracture then you should seek a specialist second opinion on the best treatment options as untreated Burst fracture can lead to more serious problems including nerve damage, persistent pain and immobility.

Our Location

We are based on the Prestigious Harley Street and our clinic is fully equipped to diagnose and treat Burst fracture

 

More details about Burst fracture

A burst fracture is a type of traumatic spinal injury in which a vertebra breaks from a high-energy axial load (e.g., traffic collisions or falls from a great height or high speed, and some kinds of seizures, or jumping into a swimming pool at the shallow end whilst intoxicated), with shards of vertebra penetrating surrounding tissues and sometimes the spinal canal.[1] The burst fracture is categorized by the “severity of the deformity, the severity of (spinal) canal compromise, the degree of loss of vertebral body height, and the degree of neurologic deficit.”[2] Burst fractures are considered more severe than compression fractures because long-term neurological damage can follow. The neurologic deficits can reach their full extent immediately, or can progress for a prolonged time.

Diagnosis is by medical imaging.
