Authors: Friedman S, Zac L, Cattan A, Ovadia D, Lebel DE, Matot I Abstract BACKGROUND: Hyperchloremia is frequent in adult surgical patients and is associated with renal dysfunction. Studies in surgical pediatric patients are lacking. OBJECTIVES: To identify both the incidence of postoperative hyperchloremia in children undergoing surgery for idiopathic and non-idiopathic scoliosis, and the association of postoperative hyperchloremia with intraoperative fluid management and postoperative diuresis. METHODS: The records of 74 children and adolescents who underwent elective scoliosis surgery were retrospective...

We report results in a series of 28 thoracolumbar flexion-distraction fractures without neurologic deficit, treated using a minimally invasive approach.MethodA single-center retrospective study was conducted for the period 2008–2015. Patients over 16 years of age with a flexion-distraction fracture without neurologic deficit were included. Analysis was based on preoperative CT-scan and measurement of post-traumatic kyphotic deformity. Surgery comprised posterior percutaneous fixation, alone or associated to an anterior step in case of discal lesion on preoperative MRI or of severe vertebral comminution. Operative tim...

AbstractPurposeTo determine whether posterior implant removal prevents stress-shielding-induced vertebral osteopenia within the posterior fusion area in surgically treated patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS).MethodsEighteen patients with major thoracic AIS (mean age, 43.3  years; range, 32–56 years; mean follow-up, 28.8 years, range, 20–39 years) who underwent posterior spinal fusion (PSF) alone between 1973 and 1994 were included. Participants were divided into implant removal (group R,n = 10, mean interval until implant removal, 50 months) and implant non...

Scoliosis is defined as a deformity of the spine with lateral curvature in the coronal plane. It requires regular X-ray imaging to monitor the progress of the disorder, therefore scoliotic patients are frequently exposed to radiation. It is important to lower the risk from these exposures for young patients. The aim of this work is to compare organ dose (OD) values resulting from Scan Projection Radiograph (SPR) mode in CT against projection radiography and EOS ® imaging system when assessing scoliosis.
