Thirty two cases of the cervical spinal injury have been collected except those which associated with the injury on the other sites, such as head or internal organs. Nine cases of them were managed with surgery anterior and/or posterior approaches. The others were only immobilized by traction. Independent of operative method, we acquired slight to moderate improvement in all operative cases. Two cases with skeletal traction, however, became more aggravated. Indication of operation has much controversies as yet. A Major problem at present falls on the difficulty of functional recovery.
