My scoliosis story: Unbraced…after 2 years
Frustration. Exasperation. Annoyance. Those were some of the emotions that consumed me the first day I wore my brace. Frustrated that a crooked spine was interfering in my happy teenage life, frustrated that I felt restricted from my normal activities, and worst of all, frustrated that the end was nowhere in sight. There was no set duration, no calendar countdown; it seemed like an eternal waiting game. The initial days, weeks and months with my brace brought physical pain, sleepless nights and feelings of desolation and despair. It was painful to eat, as my stomach would press against the rigid plastic when it expanded. I...

Brooke’s story: Looking back on my scoliosis surgery
I was diagnosed with scoliosis in April 2009 when I was 7 years old. An x-ray confirmed my family’s worst fears: I was growing a crooked spine. I had a 30-degree curve in my thoracic (upper) spine and a 15-degree curve in my lumbar (lower) spine. My scoliosis brace My family and I tried many alternative treatments, such as a chiropractor and an osteopathic doctor, in the hopes that I could avoid wearing a back brace, but my curves were large and really needed bracing. When I was wearing my brace as I was supposed to, my upper curve would go down to somewhere between 20 and 30 degrees. But I wasn’t able to adjus...

My scoliosis story: One year later—celebrating surgery
I’m Abby DiCocco. I am 12, and I have scoliosis. One year ago, on June, 5, 2014, I had magnetic rods, called MAGEC rods, surgically implanted in my back to help fix the curve. I was the first person at Boston Children’s Hospital to get the magnetic rods. It was pretty amazing to be the first, but I was a little scared, too. Before my surgery, the curvature in my spine was 65 degrees. After my surgery, it was only 10 degrees, a major difference. My life is mostly all fun and games now, thanks to the surgery. Without the magnetic rods, I would be in the hospital constantly and out of school more than once every t...

What is the Epidemiology of SMA Syndrome?
Discussion Superior mesenteric artery syndrome (SMAS) is caused by the compression of the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) against the 3rd part of the duodenum creating a proximal intestinal obstruction. It is relatively rare and can be hard to distinguish from other causes of intestinal obstruction. Normally the SMA arises from the anterior aorta around the L1 vertebra. It extends anteriorly and caudally into the mesentery of the small bowel. The angle between the SMA and aorta is called the aortomesenteric angle and is usually 38-65°. The distance between the SMA and aorta is usually 10-20 mm. Within the aortomesent...

Most patients with early-onset scoliosis like Abby, David and Jessica have surgery to place rods in their spine. But it’s not a one-shot deal. An orthopedic surgeon must replace rods as the child outgrows them, meaning another operation every year or so. MAGEC rods are different. First, ...
