“Acute Schmorl's Nodes”
Dr. Dennis Long from New York sent me a great research article on Schmorl's nodes and trauma. Although it is 11 years old, the information is still pertinent. When doing a query through the medical literature, there were 172 hits for the search words "Acute-Schmorl's-nodes" and this article appears to be the standard in the literature.
