In adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) there has been a shift towards increasing the number of implants and pedicle screws, which has not been proven to improve cosmetic correction. To evaluate if increasing cost of instrumentation correlates with cosmetic correction using clinical photographs. 58 Lenke 1A and B cases from a multicenter AIS database with(More)
Superiority of pedicle screws over hybrid/hook instrumentation or vice versa in the treatment of Lenke Type 1 and 2 adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) remains unresolved for moderate curves. Our objective was therefore to compare the assessment of pedicle screw and hybrid/hooks instrumentation with special attention to cosmesis and uninstrumented spine(More)
Considerable variability exists in the surgical treatment and outcomes of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). This is due to the lack of evidence-based treatment guidelines and outcome measures. Although clinical trials have been extolled as the highest form of evidence for evaluating treatment efficacy, the disadvantage of cost, time, lack of(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective. Level IV Evidence. OBJECTIVE To assess the utility of intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring (IONM) to detect and eventually prevent impending neurovascular damage during computed tomography (CT)-guided radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of spinal osteoid osteoma (OO) in children. SUMMARY AND BACKGROUND DATA To our(More)

STUDY DESIGN Retrospective study. OBJECTIVE To assess results of posterior instrumented fusion using pedicle screws in 12 children with osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) with spinal deformity at a single institution from 2001 to 2012. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA This is the first case series of OI patients who underwent non-cement augmented screw-rod(More)
Sotos syndrome is caused by a gene deletion with an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance. Cerebral gigantism, hypotonia and joint hyperextensibility are characteristic features of this syndrome. A percentage of these patients develop progressive scoliosis early in life. In the literature, few studies on the evolution of scoliosis in Sotos syndrome have(More)
STUDY DESIGN We conducted a retrospective study of patients with congenital scoliosis due to hemivertebra (HV) and performed resection with instrumentation through posterior approach-only with long term follow-up. OBJECTIVES The objective of this study was to assess results of HV resection by posterior approach-only with instrumentation between 2002 and(More)
