Resumen

KIGERA, JWM  y  NYATI, M. Contiguous bifacet cervical fracture dislocations. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2010, vol.9, n.3, pp. 83-85. ISSN 2309-8309.

Bifacet dislocations of the cervical spine are severe debilitating injuries often associated with complete cord injury. Contiguous bilateral facet dislocations are extremely rare and, to the best of our knowledge, have only been described once before. We present a patient who was involved in a road traffic accident. Pre-operative radiographs suggested contiguous bifacet injury and this was confirmed intra-operatively. This should alert physicians to the possibility of contiguous injuries to the cervical spine.
