Description: Lower lumbar fractures.
Fractures of L4 and L5 differ from those at the thoracolumbar junction. The differences involve anatomy, biomechanics, treatment options and classification. The rarity of these injuries is evident from their limited discussion in the literature. Treatment must be individualised and the recommendations for thoracolumbar trauma management cannot necessarily been transferred to low lumbar fractures.
