Holdsworth fracture treatment

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

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

More details about Holdsworth fracture

In medicine the Holdsworth fracture is an unstable fracture dislocation of the thoraco lumbar junction of the spine. The injury comprises a fracture through a vertebral body, rupture of the posterior spinal ligaments and fractures of the facet joints.[1]

The injury was described by Frank Wild Holdsworth in 1963. He described the mechanism of this injury as a flexion-rotation injury, and said that the unstable fracture dislocation should be treated by fusion of the two affected vertebrae.[2]
