Study Design. Prospective, cohort study. Objective. Demonstrate validity of Patient reported outcomes measurement information system (PROMIS) physical function, pain interference, and pain behavior computer adaptive tests (CATs) in surgically treated lumbar stenosis patients. Summary of Background Data. There has been increasing attention given to patient reported outcomes associated with spinal interventions. Historical patient outcome measures have inadequate validation, demonstrate floor/ceiling effects, and infrequently used due to time constraints. PROMIS is an adaptive, responsive National Institutes of Healt...

Adult scoliosis is different from the type children like Princess Eugenie develop - as Roger Neuberg, 77, from Leicester,experienced first-hand. This is his story.
ConclusionFall prevention for the elderly undergoing lumbar spinal surgery is necessary due to the highly increased hip fracture risk.
14-year-old Georgie says Princess Eugenie’s decision to wear a wedding dress that showed off her scoliosis scar was “an inspirational thing to do.”

Discussion: Preliminary observations reveal the SIC to be relatively safe and well tolerated in SMA patients with advanced disease and spinal fusion. The SIC warrants further study and, if proven effective in larger trials of longer duration, could double the number of patients able to receive nusinersen worldwide while reducing administration costs 5- to 10-fold.
Conclusions: This study showed that ARCBT had a significant impact on suppression of scoliosis progression compared with BT in EOS. However, the termination of cast application and the switch to BT may be still a clinical question considering the time to surgical intervention. Level of Evidence: Level III—retrospective comparative study.
Background: A new growing rod (GR) design, the semiconstrained growing rod (SCGR), with the added advantage of axial rotation freedom within the components, has been introduced at our center which has been shown to be growth friendly. We hypothesize that the SCGR system would reduce autofusion in vivo, thereby maximizing the coronal plane correction, T1-S1 growth, and the final correction achieved at definitive fusion for children with an early onset scoliosis. Methods: In total, 28 patients had either single or dual 5.5 mm diameter SCGR placed minimally invasively through a submuscular approach. Surgical lengt...
PRINCESS EUGENIE, 28, is having her wedding with Jack Brooksbank, 32, today. The bride was diagnosed with scoliosis in 2002 - a condition that causes back pain. These are the signs and symptoms of scoliosis to be aware of.
