Deformity of the spine as a complication of primary care

A. Ohry, M. Heim, Y. Shemesh

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Of the 128 traumatic dorso-lumbar spinal cord injured patients admitted to our center, 18 developed a gibbus of the vertebral column. None of these non-operated patients who developed a gibbus received their non-operative care in a specialized spinal cord injury center. We conclude that where effective non-operative treatment cannot be instituted, internal fixation should be seriously considered as a means of preventing deformity.
