Percutaneous pedicle screw fixation for an unstable thoracic spine fracture after a traumatic degloving injury.

Abstract
Unstable spinal fractures require urgent surgical intervention to relieve compression of the spinal cord, correct spinal deformity, stabilise the spine and prevent further neurological injury. We report the case of a young man with a thoracic chance fracture in the setting of a devastating degloving injury, whose fracture was stabilised using minimally invasive, percutaneous pedicle screw fixation. We discuss the advantages of using a minimally invasive technique for spinal fixation and its role in the treatment of complicated, multisystem trauma patients.
