The 355-bed capacity reference hospital in Assir Region has recently conducted a number of spine surgeries, including one for a 45-year-old Saudi woman injured in a traffic accident. After due medical tests, she was diagnosed with an unstable fracture in the first lumbar vertebrae (L1) and 12th thoracic vertebrae (T12), as well as neurological symptoms of fecal incontinence and semi-paralysis in the lower left side of her body. By Allah’s Grace, she had a surgical operation to fixate the stable vertebrae with rods and bolts. The operation was successful and she is now in good health, thank Allah.
