Figure 6: A 21-year-old female presented with a regional posttraumatic kyphotic deformity 6 months after the injury. (a) Whole spine lateral X-ray demonstrates a healed burst fracture at L3 vertebra with kyphotic deformity of 64°, (b) Lateral lumbar radiograph and sagittal T2 magnetic resonance imaging (c) shows significant retropulsion of the large posterior fragment. (d) Due to severe angular kyphosis, the patient was treated by an all-posterior approach, L1–L5 fixation, and transpedicular resection of the vertebral body and reconstruction with a cage. (e) Follow-up X-ray shows good healing of lesion, with kyphosis of 8°
