Figure 3: The patient underwent tracheostomy and percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tube placement. Her neurological examination continued to improve. Ultimately, the tracheostomy and the percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy tubes were removed. She was kept in a crown halo vest for 6 weeks, followed by 6 weeks of rigid collar placement. During her 6-month follow-up visit, she was ambulating with a walker. Her motor strength in her proximal upper extremities improved to + 4/5. Her intrinsic hand function was 3/5 and she her speech was dysarthric. Sagittal computed tomography of the cervical spine revealed complete healing of the fracture
