Figure 4: This 34-year-old patient presented to us 1 month after the injury due to self-neglect. Her neurology was intact but she had significant instability pain. (a-d) A burst fracture of L2 vertebra, with retropulsed bone fragments. (e and f) She was treated with posterior deformity correction and stabilization in view of distraction failure of the posterior elements, and follow-up lateral radiograph shows good fracture healing. The implants were removed after one year, and computed tomography shows nice remodeling of the vertebral body and spinal canal (g and h)
