Background Several studies have emphasized the importance of restoring thoracic kyphosis (TK) in the setting of AIS, but very few have discussed changes in cervical spine alignment following surgery. Aim of this study was to evaluate reciprocal cervical alignment change after modification of global and regional thoracolumbar alignment with surgery in the setting of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS).

The three-dimensional nature of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) necessitates a tridimensional assessment and management. Bracing constitutes the mainstay conservative treatment for mild adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. In the literature hitherto, there has been uncertainty regarding the behavior of the spine, pelvis, and vertebral orientations in the context of bracing, especially in the transverse plane. This poses a challenge to healthcare providers, patients, and their families, as brac...

Background Several studies have emphasized that the magnetically controlled growing rod (MCGR) technique decreases complications and costs and could be considered a safe procedure for treating patients with early onset scoliosis (EOS). To the best of our knowledge, the sagittal profile of patients with an implanted MCGR has not been sufficiently studied before.

Instrumentation failure in the context of spine surgery is attributed to cyclic loading leading to formation of fatigue cracks, which later propagate and result in rod fracture. A biomechanical analysis of the potential impact of electrocautery on the fatigue life of spinal implants has not been previously performed. The aim of this study was to assess the fatigue life of titanium (Ti) and cobalt-chrome (CoCr) rod-screw constructs after being treated with electrocautery. Twelve spinal constructs...

Hintergrund Postoperative Komplikationen in der Wirbelsaulenchirurgie sind haufig. Uber die Zeitpunkte des jeweiligen Komplikationseintritts im postoperativen Verlauf wurde bisher nur sparlich berichtet. Die Erfassung der Haufigkeitsgipfel postoperativer Komplikationen hat jedoch wesentlichen Einfluss auf die Aufklarung der Patienten sowie die postoperativen Verlaufskontrollen.

OBJECTIVEThe goal of this study was to investigate the impact of thoracic and lumbar alignment on cervical alignment in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS).METHODSEighty-one patients with AIS who had a Cobb angle > 40° and full-length spine radiographs were included. Radiographs were analyzed using dedicated software to measure pelvic parameters (sacral slope [SS], pelvic incidence [PI], pelvic tilt [PT]); regional parameters (C1 slope, C0–C2 angle, chin-brow vertical angle [CBVA...
