Lumbar roots radiculopathy caused by traumatic fracture of transverse process of lumbar vertebra: case report
Keywords:vertebral trauma, fracture of transverse processes, radiculopathy, pain
The clinical observation of LIII vertebra transverse process damage, accompanied by unusually expressed and various neurological symptoms (intensive pain, lower limb monoplegia, convulsive syndrome, loss of consciousness, respiratory failure), proof neurological deficit in spite of different types of treatment, including surgical, have been conducted for a long time in specialized medical establishments. Only after surgical treatment, directed on fractured transverse process repairing, gradual regression of neurologic symptoms and sustained success in treatment were achieved.
