Conclusions: Lumbar fusion through CBT instrumentation would reduce FJV. Computer-assisted navigation resulted in a lower incidence of FJV. Percutaneous instrumentation with navigation assistance is not a risk factor for FJV. Special care should be taken in patients with body mass index ≥30 kg/m2, left-side screw, facet angle ≥45 degrees, and scoliosis. Level of Evidence: Level III.

AbstractPurposeTo investigate airway development and airway resistance by computed tomographic three-dimensional (3D) reconstruction of the bronchial tree in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). We evaluated factors predicting postoperative respiratory complications to provide timely treatment, prevent complications, and improve operative and anesthetic safety.MethodsFrom August 2015 to August 2017, 53 AIS patients with a mean age of 15.4  years (range 10–20 years) were included in this study. Scoliotic parameters on radiographs were analyzed. Airway resistance was obtained by pulmonary func...

Conclusion: Our observation demonstrates evidence of central nervous system involvement in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). Lower intracortical inhibition, higher motor cortex excitability, and preserved spinal inhibitory circuits are the main findings of this study. A possible explanation of these changes could be attributed to impaired sensorimotor integration predominantly at the cortical level. PMID: 32202478 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Mini-open anterolateral interbody fusion at the L5 S1 level is safe and results in fusion at the same rate as anterior interbody fusion. Most acute complications are minor and resolve spontaneously. PMID: 32197973 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Use of the Microcuff® During General Anesthesia for Patients With Scoliosis. Anesth Prog. 2020;67(1):23-27 Authors: Kishimoto T, Hayashi S, Nakanishi Y, Goto T, Kosugi K, Sakurai S Abstract Scoliosis may often be associated with a variety of cardiovascular and respiratory conditions or diseases, and depending on the severity of the spinal deformity, it may also complicate anesthetic management because of the difficulty of neck extension and tracheal deformity. Therefore, patients with scoliosis may require careful perioperative anesthetic considerations. A 14-year-old girl was scheduled to undergo ...

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate the safety and efficacy of a system aiming to correct scoliosis called “electromagnetically controlled shape-memory alloy rods” (EC-SMAR) used in a rabbit model.MethodsWe heat-treated shape-memory alloy (SMA) rods to achieve a transition temperature between 34 and 47  °C and a C-shape austenite phase. We then developed a water-cooled generator capable of generating an alternating magnetic field (100 kHz) for induction heating. We next studied the efficacy of this system in vitro and determined some parameters prior to proceeding with animal experiments. We th en employed...

ConclusionsEarly posterior hemivertebrectomy with short fusion is effective in the treatment of lumbosacral hemivertebrae. It can achieve good coronal curve correction, sacral tilt, and trunk shift improvement. No neurological complications were found. Importantly, it can prevent secondary structural deformities and potentially save fusion level.
