Introduction of the Novel Radiographic Line (L5-Kyphosis Apex Line) Intended to Evaluate Scheuermann's Disease and Postural Kyphosis Progression on Standard Lateral X-Rays.

Conclusions: Our evidence suggests that the L5-KAL can serve as an indicator of the thoracic curve change in Scheuermann's disease and postural kyphosis patients and should be considered in clinical practice. PMID: 31940713 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

The purpose of this retrospective study was to determine the most appropriate distal fusion level in terms of clinical results and radiological changes in Lenke 3C adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). Between June 2010 and May 2014, a total of 90 consecutive patients who underwent surgery for Lenke 3C AIS were divided into three groups as L2, L3, and L4 according to the fusion levels and compared in terms of functional and radiological outcomes. Patients were evaluated with Scoliosis Research Society 22 (SRS 22) and the Oswestry disability index (ODI) at the final follow-up. Preoperative standard posteroanterior and late...

Conclusion: Incidental findings on MRI of the spine are less common in the paediatric population than in the adult population. Nevertheless, careful clinical evaluation of paediatric patients with complaints of axial and radiating pain is necessary in order to determine the correlation between symptoms and imaging findings.Resumo Objetivo: Determinar a preval ência de achados incidentais em exames de ressonância magnética (RM) da coluna cervical, torácica e lombar em uma população pediátrica. Materiais e Métodos: Foram avaliados 190 exames de RM da coluna vertebral de p...

DISCUSSION: These findings suggest that the relationship between parent factors and long-term postoperative pain outcomes may be dependent on the child's symptom profile at baseline. Since there may be bidirectional relationships between parent and child factors, interventions to mitigate long-term pain should address child symptoms as well as parental factors.

Abstract BACKGROUND: In the literature, there are few papers on long-term results after brace treatment and there is no consensus on whether scoliotic curves stop progressing at skeletal maturity. To date the factors that could influence curve behaviour following bracing have not been fully determined. AIM: The aim of this study was to evaluate the results and the loss of the scoliotic curve correction in a cohort of patients treated with PASB brace during adolescence and to compare patient outcomes of under and over 30 Cobb degrees 10 years after brace removal. DESIGN: This is an observational controlle...

CONCLUSIONS: RhTSG-6 can attenuate ECM degradation and apoptosis in IL-1β-induced NP cells by inhibiting the p38, JNK and ERK pathways, which may contribute to its potential application in the therapy of IDD. PMID: 32936927 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Physical therapy (PT) exercise is an evidence-based intervention for non-specific chronic low back pain, spinal deformities and poor posture. Home based PT programs are aimed at strengthening core muscle groups, improving mobility and flexibility, and promoting proper posture. However, assessing unsupervised home-based PT outcomes is a generally difficult problem due to lack of reliable methods to monitor execution correctness and compliance. We propose a monitoring method consisting of a wearable sensor array to monitor three geodesic distances between two points on the surface of the shoulders and one point on the l...

Conclusions: Patients with high general anxiety parents were more than twice as likely to still be on narcotics at their first postoperative visit. This information can be used to counsel families on the impact of anxiety on narcotic usage. Level of Evidence: Level II—prognostic studies—investigating the effect of a patient characteristic on the outcome of the disease.

CONCLUSIONS: Postoperative CIB negatively impacted patients' HRQOL. An imbalanced correction ratio between the TL/L and LS curves may cause postoperative CIB. Therefore, adequate correction of the LS curve may prevent postoperative CIB. PMID: 32886910 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Neural modulation via spinal cord stimulators (SCS) has become an accepted technique for the treatment of a variety of chronic pain syndromes. A concept akin to the placement of these devices (regardless of manufacturer) in most cases is the desire to ensure accurate midline positioning of the paddle lead in the thoracic spine. Midline positioning allows for flexibility of unilateral or bilateral coverage of pain patterns in patients. The presence of structural spinal deformities such as scoliosis or kyphosis often implies some degree of coronal, sagittal and rotatory deformity.
