Preoperative and Postoperative Sagittal Alignment and Compensatory Mechanisms in Patients With Posttraumatic Thoracolumbar Deformities Who Undergo Corrective Surgeries.

Int J Spine Surg 2021 May 7. Epub 2021 May 7.

Clínica Alemana - Universidad del Desarrollo, , Santiago, Chile.

Background: Secondary posttraumatic spinal kyphosis is a fixed deformity that has an asymptomatic presentation in most patients, but in some, persistent pain and disability can develop refractory to conservative treatment, which may result in the need for corrective surgery. Our aim was to analyze the modification of sagittal alignment and the variation in compensation mechanisms of spinal-pelvic segments before and after surgical correction in a group of patients with symptomatic posttraumatic kyphosis.

Methods: A retrospective cohort study of 16 consecutive patients from the beginning of 2007 until the beginning of 2017 who underwent surgery due to thoracolumbar sagittal deformities was performed. Read More

Ann Clin Transl Neurol 2021 May 5. Epub 2021 May 5.

Division of Neurology, Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA.

Objective: The objective of this study was to characterize the incidence and progression of scoliosis in the natural history of Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA) and document the factors leading to the requirement for corrective surgery.

Does Intraoperative Computed Tomography Improve the Outcome in Zygomatico-Orbital Complex Fracture Reduction?

J Maxillofac Oral Surg 2021 Jun 16;20(2):189-200. Epub 2020 Jul 16.

Department of Neurosurgery, Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education and Research, Chandigarh, 160012 India.

Purpose: Zygomatico-orbital (ZMO) fractures pose considerable difficulty in intraoperative assessment during open reduction and internal fixation (ORIF), and this can be attributed to its three-dimensional complex anatomy and articulations. Recent advancements in the form of intraoperative imaging and navigation have led to an adequate assessment and correct reduction of these fractures minimizing chances of any revision surgery. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the advantage of intraoperative computerized tomography (CT) scan in the management of ZMO/isolated orbital complex fracture and further to develop a protocol for managing such fractures.

Timelines for returning to physical activity following pediatric spinal surgery: recommendations from the literature and preliminary data.

BMC Res Notes 2021 Apr 29;14(1):159. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

The King's University, 9125-50 Street NW, Edmonton, AB, T6B 2H3, Canada.

Objective: Participation in physical activity and sports is known to have positive implications for physical health, and for social and emotional wellbeing of children. Following corrective spinal surgery for scoliosis, the timeline for the return to activities and sports varies from surgeon to surgeon and from location to location, and return to activities can be limited due to pain, fear, and decreased flexibility. It is critical that patients know best-practice guidelines, and it is equally critical that medical professionals know whether their patients are following those guidelines. Read More

[Screening of dysplasia of the hip in Denmark].

Ugeskr Laeger 2021 Mar;183(12)

The screening programme for developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) in Denmark is based on clinical examination and selective ultrasound examination of children with established risk factors for DDH. This method of screening may not reduce the proportion of lately diagnosed cases. Universal screening for DDH is cost-efficient and may eliminate late diagnosis of DDH and minimise the need for corrective surgery. Read More
