Spinal fusion improves pelvic and thorax-pelvis mobility (during the stance phase) in the frontal plane. The impact of scoliosis on the upper body range of motion was limited on the thorax-pelvis, corresponding to a stiffening effect. With such restrictions, an increase in normalized external work was observed for similar normalized internal work.

AbstractPurposeTo validate the reliability of Berjano and Lamartina classification system of surgical planning in cases of de novo degenerative lumbar scoliosis (DNDLS) combined with degenerative segment disease and identify factors contributing to curve progression.MethodsFifty-four cases of type I or II DNDLS were retrospectively reviewed. Health-related quality of life (HRQOL) was assessed using visual analogue scale (VAS) scores for the back and leg, Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), and Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) scores. Radiographic parameters were obtained from X-rays. Improvements in HRQOL were confirmed...

Study Design. Retrospective cohort study. Objective. Evaluate the trends in management and inpatient outcomes in patients with syndromic scoliosis undergoing spinal deformity correction. Summary of Background Data. Syndromic scoliosis (SS) refers to scoliosis that is most commonly associated with systemic disease including Ehler Danhlos syndrome (EDS), Marfan syndrome (MF), Down syndrome (DS), Achondroplasia (AP), and Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS). Limited data exist evaluating hospital outcomes in patients with SS undergoing spinal deformity correction. Methods. The Kids’ Inpatient Database (KIDS) was queri...

Conclusion. In a condition in which early detection and intervention may halt progression of disease, AIS is detected relatively late and there are specific delays to diagnosis and referral to specialist clinics. Level of Evidence: 4

Conclusions: In SMA type 2 and 3 patients undergoing radiological imaging-assisted injections, the effective dose and DAP decreased during therapy with nusinersen. The mean effective dose in patients with spondylodesis was higher than that in patients without spondylodesis. Dosimetry should be monitored carefully in order to detect and prevent unnecessary radiation exposure.
