Subaxial cervical spine fractures are commonly encountered in clinical practice. Although many cervical facet fractures are associated with significant displacement and instability, approximately 5% of all traumatic cervical spine injuries involve isolated non-displaced or minimally displaced facet fractures. The facet joints facilitate a cervical range of motion while preventing significant translation and rotation and are the main stabilizers of the cervical spine. The primary aim of this study was to determine what percentage of patients who underwent nonoperative management of unilateral non-or minimally displaced facet fractures progressed radiographically as determined by the occurrence of listhesis during follow-up. Furthermore, this study aimed to determine what percentage of patients required surgical intervention and to identify risk factors for failure of conservative management.
