 The burst fracture of the spine was first described by Holdsworth in 1963 and redefined by Denis in 1983 as being a fracture of the anterior and middle columns of the spine with or without an associated posterior column fracture. This injury has received much attention in the literature as regards its radiological diagnosis and also its clinical managment.(More)
STUDY DESIGN Prospective nonrandomized study. OBJECTIVE To report the preliminary results of magnetically controlled growing rod (MCGR) technique in children with progressive early-onset scoliosis. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The growing rod (GR) technique is a viable alternative for treatment of early-onset scoliosis. High complication rate is(More)
A 10-year-old girl presented with a history of painful scoliosis. Imaging performed, including computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), demonstrated a lesion with radiological features consistent with an osteoid osteoma (OO) of the 6th thoracic vertebra. The patient was treated conservatively with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs(More)
This study investigated whether ultrasound (U/S) is an alternative to radiography when measuring magnetically controlled growth rod (MCGR) length in order to reduce radiation exposure. Distractible spinal growth rods are the gold standard when treating early-onset scoliosis (EOS). This was a prospective series. Patients were already undergoing EOS treatment(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective clinical and radiologic review of consecutive series of patients treated with single submuscular growing rods from a single center with a minimum of 2-year follow-up. OBJECTIVES To describe the surgical technique and methods used to minimize complications and to report on the outcomes of a large consecutive series of patients(More)
STUDY DESIGN Case series. OBJECTIVE To determine whether there is improvement in pulmonary function in children with early-onset scoliosis (EOS) using magnetic growth rods (MGRs). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA EOS deformities have large impacts on lung function and volumes. Deterioration of pulmonary function in scoliosis is multifactorial, including(More)
STUDY DESIGN Prospective, intraoperative force measurement in consecutive lengthening procedures in a series of growing-rod patients undergoing lengthening. OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to measure the forces and amount of distraction over time in early onset scoliosis patients treated with growing rods. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Growing rods(More)
We aimed to investigate whether the outcome and complications of surgical treatment of neuromuscular curves with segmental third-generation instrumentation could compare with those reported with standard second-generation instrumentation. The clinical and radiologic data of a single surgeon's consecutive series of patients with neuromuscular scoliosis(More)
STUDY DESIGN Prospective assessment of a cohort of patients affected by spondylocostal dysostosis. OBJECTIVE To report on the results of conservative and operative management of spondylocostal dysostosis and, based on this, to propose an assessment and treatment protocol for the condition. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Spondylocostal dysostosis and(More)
