Scoliosis Curvature Follows Thoracic Organ Orientation

Conclusion. Dextrocardia shows increased incidence of AIS in both male and female patients. Left-sided thoracic curvature in cases with concurrent dextrocardia may not be associated with intra-spinal pathology as seen in the general population. These data suggest that thoracic organ orientation affects AIS convexity directionality. Level of Evidence: 3

ConclusionThe new growth rod concept provided 3D correction and spinal growth at complication rates comparable with other growth-friendly techniques for EOS, while pulmonary function was preserved. Single magnetic rod distraction was incorporated successfully, replacing surgical elongations.

The objective in this article is to summarize studies on cervical scoliosis, identify clinical problems, and provide directions for researchers interested in delving deep into this specific topic. In this review, we found that the lack of standard classification system could lead to an absence of clinical guidance; in addition, the osseous landmarks and vascular distributions could be variable in CD patients, which might cause the risk of vascular or neurological complications; furthermore, multiple deformities were usually presented in CD patients, which might cause chain reaction after the correction of CD; this would pr...

CONCLUSIONS: This predictive model formula for calculating the potential postoperative height gain after surgical treatment can be used preoperatively to inform idiopathic scoliosis patients of what outcomes they may expect from posterior spinal instrumentation and fusion (taking into account the model's uncertainty).

CONCLUSIONS: The ACD-specific MCID thresholds for NDI and mJOA are similar to the reported MCID following surgery for degenerative cervical disease. Additional studies are needed to verify these findings. Nonetheless, the findings here will be useful for future studies evaluating the success of surgery for patients with ACD undergoing deformity correction.

Conclusion: PSP was effective for sacral insufficiency fractures and showed good long-term outcomes. Combined compression fractures in the thoracolumbar spine and degenerative lumbar pathologies could be possible poor outcome predictors. PMID: 32455518 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Authors: Fernandes P, Soares do Brito J, Flores I, Monteiro J Abstract Objectives: Evaluate the impact of a Quality and Safety Program (QSP) on the reduction of blood loss and transfusion needs in pediatric spinal deformity surgery, while defining risk factors for transfusion. Background: Multimodal plan aiming to minimize transfusion needs has been shown to reduce transfusions and index rates in spinal deformity surgery. Anticipating blood loss and transfusion may help direct resources to patient needs or encourage reconsideration of the surgical plan. Methods: This is a single-center retrospective study o...
