The specialist in neurosurgery at the hospital, Dr. Hussam Al-Anbari, said, "Our medical team succeeded in performing the operation to stabilize the vertebrae and depressurize the spinal cord, for a forty-year-old patient from Anbar Governorate, who had been in a traffic accident and fractured the third and fourth thoracic vertebrae." Noting that: "The fracture was of a complex type and caused pressure on the spinal cord, which led to paralysis of the victim's lower extremities."
