Widening of these or the interspinous distance may indicate an unstable dislocation. An increase in interspinous distance of Ͼ50% suggests ligamentous disruption. Muscular spasm can make interpretation difficult. S Soft tissues: Retro-pharyngeal soft tissue swelling may be the only sign of a significant injury. Normal measurements are less than 7 mm C2–C4 (half a vertebral body at this level) and less than 22 m below C5 (a vertebral body width). Air within the soft tissues suggests rupture of oesophagus or trachea/bronchus.

Clay shovelers’ fracture: Spinous process fracture following direct trauma or ligamentous avulsion – stable injury. Atlanto-occipital and alanto-axial dislocation: Highly unstable. May be associated with an odontoid fracture. Bilateral facet dislocation: Requires a large degree of force and is highly unstable. The vertebral body above displaces anteriorly by at least 50% of the AP diameter of the vertebral body. The facets often appear ‘locked’. Odontoid fracture: Subdivided according to site. Type 1 occurs at the tip and is stable.

These studies can be repeated over time. Management ● 48 ● ABCs. Time is of the essence. 3 Oesophageal Perforation/Rupture Oesophageal rupture. Air is seen outlining the right side of the mediastinum (arrowheads). This demonstrates the leak of contrast (arrow) from the distal third of the oesophagus. An NG tube can be carefully passed to decompress the stomach.
