    STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective radiographic review.

    OBJECTIVES: To analyze how the Lenke classification of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis provides a template of specific curve patterns that may be appropriate to perform selective fusion of the spine.

    METHODS: A new triad classification system of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis has been developed. It consists of a curve type, a lumbar spine modifier (A, B, C), and a sagittal thoracic modifier (-, N, +). A selective fusion is termed when ...

    STUDY DESIGN: Analysis of radiographic outcomes following surgical correction of scoliosis.

    OBJECTIVES: To compare the curve correction and derotation following anterior spinal fusion (ASF) versus posterior spinal fusion (PSF) with thoracic pedicle screws.

    SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: The benefits of ASF in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis include saving distal fusion levels and historically greater correction and derotation compared with PSF. However, comparative studies between ASF and ...

    STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective clinical, radiographic, and patient outcome review of surgically treated adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.

    OBJECTIVES: To correlate radiographic and clinical features of shoulder balance and the proximal thoracic curve with patient satisfaction outcomes at a minimum 2-year follow-up.

    SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Traditionally, radiographic features of a structural proximal thoracic curve have been T1 tilt, proximal thoracic Cobb angle, and proximal thoracic ...

    STUDY DESIGN: A prospective evaluation of pulmonary function in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis undergoing surgical correction.

    OBJECTIVES: 1) To evaluate prospectively, at regular intervals, the changes in pulmonary function after surgical arthrodesis of primary thoracic and double primary thoracic-lumbar (double major) types of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis in a homogeneous population; 2) to compare the changes in pulmonary function after surgical correction relative to ...

    OBJECTIVE: To comprehensively compare the 2-year postoperative results of posterior correction and fusion with segmental pedicle screw instrumentation versus with hybrid (proximal hooks and distal pedicle screws) constructs in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) treated at a single institution.

    SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Despite the reports of satisfactory correction and maintenance of scoliotic curves by pedicle screw ...

    STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study of large-magnitude thoracic curves (> or =90 degrees ) treated with pedicle screw constructs.

    OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the results of pedicle screw constructs for thoracic curves > or = 90 degrees in terms of sagittal and coronal correction/efficacy, as well as accuracy and safety of thoracic pedicle screw placement.

    SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Thoracic pedicle screw constructs continue to become increasingly more common; however, the debate continues ...

    STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective clinical, radiographic, and patient outcome review of surgically treated adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.

    OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the spontaneous correction of the noninstrumented proximal thoracic (PT) curve after isolated correction of the main thoracic (MT) curve by either an anterior (ASF) or posterior (PSF) instrumentation and fusion.

    SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: There are no studies comparing the structural PT curve response after anterior versus ...

    BACKGROUND: As a result of the increased appreciation of the three-dimensional nature of scoliosis and modern spinal instrumentation's improved corrective capabilities, there has been renewed interest in the correction and measurement of vertebral rotation. Computed tomography (CT), the gold standard for accuracy, is limited in its clinical utility owing to cost, radiation exposure, and the effects of postural changes on scoliosis curves and vertebral rotation. Consequently, the ...
