Publication Type Case Report
Abstract/Notes Excerpt: The cervical spine burst fracture is defined as a “vertical compression injury of a vertebral body”. This vertical compression generates an axial load which may cause an intact nucleus pulposis “to implode through the inferior end-plate of the supra-adjacent vertebral body”, bringing about an explosion of the vertebral body.

A 16-year-old hockey player received a vertical compression injury to his cervical spine, when while being pursued into the corner to retrieve a puck, he lost an edge and fell, and went head first into the boards. The axial load to his cervical spine was attenuated somewhat as he also took some of the blow with his extended right upper extremity. Following the collision with the boards, he lay motionless on the ice for 10 minutes. He was taken to the emergency room on a spine board, where he complained of right elbow pain, and pain in his “back”.
