Previous randomized controlled trials have demonstrated the efficacy of antifibrinolytic agents in the reduction of intraoperative blood loss in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) surgery. Tranexamic acid (TXA) was found to be more effective at reducing total blood loss compared with epsilon-aminocaproic acid (AM) than placebo. We set out to study whether or not the level 1 evidence can be corroborated in a large multicenter, multisurgeon cohort.

The purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of Schroth scoliosis-specific exercises (SSE) on patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) during bracing. The goal is t...
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
A therapeutic approach, involving chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or surgery, after initial regimens have failed to lead to improvement in a patient's condition. Salvage therapy is most often used for neoplastic diseases.
A followup operation to examine the outcome of the previous surgery and other treatments, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
Any observable response or action of an adolescent.
An adolescent who is receiving long-term in-patient services or who resides in an institutional setting.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
