Abstract

We report a case of L4-L5 traumatic anterolisthesis. The patient was treated surgically 4 months after the injury. His radiological and operative findings showed L4 inferior facet tip fracture, L4-L5 anterior displacement and left L4-L5 foraminal disc protrusion. Decompression, reduction with L3, L4, L5 pedicular screw fixation, L4-L5 disc excision and interbody cage insertion with autologous bone grafts were done. Flexion type injury was thought to be the probable mechanism.
