Abstract

A consecutive series of 64 halo-vest-treated unstable cervical spine injuries is described. We agree with earlier investigators on the advantages of halo-vest treatment. For several types of injuries affecting the cervical spine we prefer the halo-vest method, which has a low rate of technical failures and complications. The healing rate was found to be high. Hospitalization was very short with the halo-vest method.
