Flexion-extension injuries of cervical spine: simulation capabilities and primary prevention of road traffic injuries (review)

Year: 2020, volume 16 Issue: №2 Pages: 500-505
Heading: Traumatology and Orthopedics Article type: Review
Authors: Ulyanov V.Yu., Salikhou Kh., Norkin I.A.
Organization: Saratov State Medical University

The article reviews 37 Russian and foreign literature sources available at PubMed, E-library, Cyberleninka databases on flexion-extension injuries of the cervical spine, simulation capacities, and measures of traffic accident trauma primary prevention. The authors analyzed contemporary data on the mechanics of flexion-extension injuries of the cervical spine, described the capacities of simulation for this common trauma that brings significant medical and social consequences, and drew conclusions on the prospects of traffic injury primary prevention.
