Abstract

A study of 14 surgically treated patients with low lumbar burst fractures (L3 to L5) is reported. Initially, 13 patients presented with incomplete neurologic deficits below the level of injury. The follow-up period ranged from 24 to 40 months, with an average of 30 months. In group 1, seven patients underwent one-stage anterior decompression, fusion, and Anterior Locking Plate System (ALPS) fixation. In Group 2, seven patients had posterior surgery with decompression, portero-lateral fusion, and a short segment fixation, one above and one below the injuried level, with the reduction-fixation transpediculate system. Indications for one-stage anterior surgery consisted of patients with incomplete neurologic deficits, segmental kyphotic deformity caused by loss of anterior vertebral height (
