Table 5 Neurological status at time of diagnosis for patients with C0–C2 and subaxial fractures (fxs)

From: The epidemiology of traumatic cervical spine fractures: a prospective population study from Norway

Neurological Status C0–C2 fx (N = 133) N (%) Subaxial fx (N = 203) N (%) Fisher’s exact test
Normal 117 (88) 152 (75) p < 00.1
Root 0 (0) 15 (7)
Incomplete SCI 5 (4) 22 (11)
Complete SCI 0 (0) 6 (3)
Unknown 11 (8) 8 (4)  
  1. 17 of the 319 patients included in this study had both C0-C2 and Subaxial Fractures (fxs). Thus, the sum of C0-C2 and Subaxial fxs in this table adds up to 336. Regarding the 17 patients with combined fxs, the charts/MRI scans were used to determine wheter the neurological deficit(s) were associated with the axial or subaxial components of the injury.
