Although not tested statistically, there was a higher absolute number of complications, though less severe, in group I, with scheuuermann levels of satisfaction achieved in group II.

Double L-rod instrumentation in the treatment of scheuermann kyphosis secondary to Scheuermann’s disease.

Spinal curvature Kyphosis Lordosis Scoliosis. Retrieved 2 April It is a deformity that typically occurs at the end of juvenile age, more commonly between eight and 12 years, and occurs in its most rigid form between 12 and 16 years of age.

Most people have forced vital capacity FVC scores above average. Retrieved from ” https: Two other studies evaluating the posterior approach using the hook system showed loosening of the hooks in scbeuermann cases out of 27, requiring two subsequent surgeries 4 ; in the other study, there was breaking of the stem in one case out of 30, requiring revision surgery and resulting in one patient with loss of correction, and pain In the present study, the patients in whom the posterior approach was used had a mean follow-up of After follow-up, the patients were evaluated by the cifse VAS method; only three patients complained of residual pain, and the sfheuermann postoperative score was 0.


Notice the signature ‘wedging’ shape of the four vertebrae in the lower thoracic area.

Case 4 Case 4. In addition to the pain associated with Scheuermann’s disease, many sufferers of the disorder have loss of vertebral height, and depending on where the apex of the curve is, may have a visual ‘hunchback’ or ’roundback’. Spinal fusion for kyphosis and scoliosis is an extremely invasive surgery. A flexible probe was used to confirm the presence of bone in the upper, lower, medial, lateral walls and at the end of the access route Synonyms or Alternate Spellings: Diagnosis is typically by medical imaging.

Clin Orthop Relat Res. Foram avaliados 28 pacientes divididos em dois grupos conduzidos de forma temporalmente distinta.

This may be explained by the learning curve required for the new technique, the incipient number of patients in which the second technique was used, and perhaps, the presence of older patients, with more rigid curves, in the posterior approach group. The classic surgical procedure partially entails entering two titanium rods, each roughly one and a half feet long depending on the size of the khyphosisinto the back on either side of the spine.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. They will then often be required to wear a brace for several months to ensure the spine heals correctly leaving the patient with the correct posture.

For a more viable result, a program of prospective, randomized work is needed, to homogenize the groups and eliminate differences in the sample. Therefore, we opted to use a sample projected to a work of greater international importance, involving 39 patients, which was conducted partly retrospectively and partly prospectively, and published in by Lee et al Osteoporosis in Scheuermann’s disease. The titanium instrumentation can stay in the body permanently, or be removed years later.

In our study, we retrospectively operated on 19 patients with initial average kyphosis of Prevalence, concordance, and heritability of Scheuermann kyphosis based on a study of twins.
