Cervicodorsal injury presenting as sternal fracture

, : Cervicodorsal injury presenting as sternal fracture. Clinical Radiology 31(1): 49-53

Clinically silent cervicodorsal fracture may occur following upper-thoracic injury in the presence of a characteristic buckling injury to the sternum. Failure to recognise the association may result in gross kyphotic deformity. Three examples are provided, illustrating the role of radiology in the management of this complex traumatic lesion.
