BACKGROUND: Side dislocations, or jumped sides, are a part of a spectrum of flexion-distraction backbone accidents. Bilateral and unilateral side dislocations are generally seen within the cervical backbone. Traumatic jumped sides within the lumbar backbone are uncommon accidents, and a majority of those contain the lumbosacral junction. Lumbar side subluxations happen generally in youthful sufferers, because of the flexion-distraction forces on the lumbar backbone on the time of the damage mixed with ligamentous laxity that exists in these sufferers.
CASE DESCRIPTION: We current a case of a 24-year-old male with a unilateral proper side dislocation at L3 – L4 with anterolisthesis and canal stenosis after a motorized vehicle accident.
CONCLUSIONS: Unilateral jumped sides, following anatomic discount, might be successfully handled with instrumented stabilization. Our report gives proof for the sturdiness of brief phase arthrodesis in choose instances of a uncommon lumbar side subluxation.
