Retracted: Modified Closing-Opening Wedge Osteotomy to Correct Kyphosis in Ankylosing Spondylitis.

Retracted: Modified Closing-Opening Wedge Osteotomy to Correct Kyphosis in Ankylosing Spondylitis. Med Sci Monit. 2020 Feb 13;26:e923318 Authors: Feng C, Tao H, Yang K, Xu J, Duan C, Yang W, Li H, Li H Abstract An Editorial decision has been made to retract the manuscript, Feng C, et al. Modified Closing-Opening Wedge Osteotomy to Correct Kyphosis in Ankylosing Spondylitis. Med Sci Monit. 2019; 25:6532-6538. It has come to our attention that the method of modified closing opening wedge osteotomy is not an original procedure developed by the authors, but has previously been described by Boissière L, et al. Spine J. 2015;15(12):2574-82, and Gao R, et al. Spine J. 2015;15(9):2009-15, and Boachie-Adjei O, et al. Spine (Phila Pa 1976). 2006;31(4):485-92. PMID: 32088724 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: PSO can provide acceptable radiographic outcomes for the correction of thoracolumbar kyphosis in patients with AS. However, a high incidence of surgery-related complications related to mechanical failure and surgical technique can develop. Thorough radiographic investigation before and during surgery is needed to determine whether complete ossification occurs along the anterior and posterior longitudinal ligaments of the spine.

Abstract Urolithiasis, a common condition in patients with spinal deformity, poses a challenge to surgical procedures and anesthetic management. A 51-year-old Chinese male presented with bilateral complex renal calculi. He was also affected by severe kyphosis deformity and spinal stiffness due to ankylosing spondylitis. Dr. Li performed the percutaneous nephrolithotomy under local infiltration anesthesia with the patient in a kneeling prone position, achieving satisfactory stone clearance with no severe complications. We found this protocol safe and effective to manage kidney stones in patients with spinal deformi...

Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) patients with kyphosis have an abnormal spinopelvic alignment and pelvic morphology. Most studies focus on the relationship of pelvic tilt (PT) or sacral slope (SS) and deformity, a...

CONCLUSIONS: Rasterstereography has proved to be a valid tool in monitoring change in spinal structure in AS patients and has shown a strong correlation with clinimetric parameters of AS (BASMI). Future studies are needed, with a greater number of patients, in order to better characterize the evidently existing relationship between postural changes in AS patients and rasterstereography. CLINICAL REHABILITATION IMPACT: Rasterstereography has proved to be a valid tool in monitoring postural changes in AS patients and has shown a strong correlation with clinical evaluations. Therefore, the assessment of postural characte...

ConclusionThe combined open and percutaneous approach was feasible and might be considered as an alternative option to conventional open surgery when planning major deformity correction in ankylosing spondylitis.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Andersson lesions (ALs), also known as spondylodiscities, destructive vertebral lesions and spinal pseudarthrosis, usually occur in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS). Inflammatory and traumatic causes have been proposed to define this lesion. Different surgical approaches including anterior, posterior, and combined anterior and posterior procedure have been used to address the complications, consisting of mechanical pain, kyphotic deformity, and neurologic deficits. However, the preferred surgical procedure remains controversial. The aim of this study was to illustrate the safety, effi...

This study was to investigate the role of pelvic incidence (PI) in the development of Andersson lesions (ALs) in ankylosing spondylitis (AS) patients with kyphosis and to evaluate the difference in sagittal spinopelvic parameters between inflammatory ALs and mechanical ALs.MethodA total of 135 AS patients with kyphosis were reviewed. The patients were classified into AL group and non-AL group based on the presence or absence of ALs. Additionally, AS patients with ALs were also classified as either inflammatory or mechanical lesions depending on the radiological features of the lesions. The sagittal spinopelvic parameters o...

Study Design. Retrospective study. Objective. To describe the treatment results of patients with severe ankylosing spondylitis (AS) kyphosis who underwent two-level osteotomy and correction surgery. Summary of Background Data. The best solution for the fixed kyphotic deformity of AS is corrective osteotomy. Many osteotomy options are available: pedicle subtraction osteotomy (PSO), Smith-Peterson osteotomy (SPO), and vertical column resection (VCR). These procedures all provide multiplanar deformity correction. Nevertheless, when the AS deformity is severe, an additional osteotomy site to get more correction, achiev...

Radiographic realignment objectives for the surgical correction of adult spinal deformity (ASD) has been well-described. However, the optimal sagittal spinopelvic alignment after corrective osteotomy for thoracolumbar kyphosis secondary to ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is still unknown so far.
