    Here's this week's sample CME board review question on Cervical Spine Injuries:

    A 20-year-old woman experiences a spinal fracture.

    Determining the stability of the fracture is key to management.

    Admittedly, however, this can become a complex question.

    One practical principle is the 3-column theory of Denis, where a violation beyond one column renders the fracture unstable.


    Which of the following divisions into 3 segments (including the associated ligaments) is correct?

    Answer Options:

    anterior two-thirds of the vertebral body, the posterior third of the vertebral body, and the posterior elements

    vertebral body, the arch of the canal, and the spinous process

    upper half of the vertebral body, the lower half of vertebral body, and the lower disc

    anterior half of the vertebral body, the posterior half of the vertebral body plus the arch, and the spinal process
