B2 Transalar fracture

This is a transalar fracture which does not involve the foramina or the spinal canal. There is approximally 5% chance of neuro injury (primarily L5 where the L5 root can get trapped between the displaced sacral ala and L5 transverse process). B2 fractures correspond to Denis Zone I injuries.
