At the end, the two groups were compared, adopting a comparative, case control methodology with transversal analysis.

Nossa amostra consta de 28 pacientes que foram separados em dois grupos conduzidos em momentos cifpse.

Thank you for updating your details. What can patients expect? The surgical management of patients with Scheuermann’s disease: The patients were followed up every 15 days in the first month after surgery. Free hand pedicle screw placement in the thoracic spine: The apex of their curve, located in the thoracic scheuerann, is quite rigid. The degree of kyphosis can be measured by Cobb’s angle and sagittal balance.

J Bone Joint Surg Br. 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 Corrective osteotomies in spine surgery.

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. Vertebral alterations in Scheuermann’s kyphosis.

Screws were placed bilaterally or unilaterally at each level. All the patients were submitted to surgical treatment by the same team of surgeons. In severe or extreme cases, patients may be treated through an extensive surgical procedure in an effort to prevent the disease from worsening or harming the body. The screws were then introduced using the freehand technique – unlike the method reported by Kim et al 23 in which a drill was used to make the access route We highlight the fact that the sample is still small, and the need for longer follow-up of cases, following surgery, as well as better training in the practice of osteotomies, and new studies to evaluate the real role of posterior instrumentation associated with Smith- Petersen osteotomy as a method of treating SK.

Although there was no objective control in this study, it was noted that there were less systemic repercussions in patients when this approach route was used, with faster, less painful rehabilitation.

Thoracic pedicle screw fixation in spinal deformities: Juvenile kyphosis Scheuermann’s disease: Its origin has been associated with avascular necrosis of the epiphyseal rings 1juvenile osteoporosis 8,9 and cartilaginous matrix disorder, all still with conflicting results.

Due to the wide variation in prevalence of the deformity between populations, and the lack of studies comparing forms of treatment, sample calculation was not possible.


While many patients are typically interested in getting surgery for their correction, it is important to realize the surgery aims to reduce pain, and not cosmetic defect. The frequency of complications varies depending on the criteria adopted by the researchers, but this has not been validated. Check for errors and try again.

Retrieved 13 October In our series, we demonstrated seven complications in the group in which the double approach was used one case of early surface infection of the surgery wound; one case of asymptomatic breaking of two screws; on case of late infection 24 months after surgery; one case of loosening of the distal implant; and three patients with complaints of residual painand only three in the group in which the posterior route was used one case of residual pain, another of discomfort around the implants, and another with a wound seroma after surgery.
