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...

Central core disease (CCD) is one of the congenital myopathies and common clinical symptoms include muscle atrophy, lower limb skeletal weakness, floppy infant syndrome, and skeletal deformities such as hip displacement and scoliosis.1,2 It is a rare disorder that exhibits autosomal dominant and recessive mode of inheritance, caused by the mutation of the ryanodine receptor (RYR1) gene.1 The RYR1 gene mutation is also responsible for malignant hyperthermia induced by general anesthesia.3,4

In conclusion, the reported prevalence of scoliosis varies widely but on average affects about one in eight children after open repair of EA/TEF. Most cases are mild and do not require intervention. It is currently uncertain whether secondary scoliosis is preventable by using meticulous thoracotomy techniques or thoracoscopic repair.Level of evidence IV.
