Congenital spinal deformity (CSD) has traditionally been treated with 3-column osteotomies [hemivertebrectomy (HV) or vertebral column resection (VCR)] to address rigid deformities. Alternatively, multiple Ponte osteotomies (PO) may provide correction while minimizing risk. The purpose of this study was to compare safety and outcomes of patients undergoing surgical treatment for CSD with these 3 procedures.

In rhinoplasty, osteotomies are performed to manipulate the bony nasal vault to improve the function and/or the aesthetics of the nose. This article provides an overview of the instruments used for os...

Retrospective comparative study.
The purpose of this study was to explore the trigonometric principles of the spherical osteotomy, establish guidelines for its application and test the guidelines on bone models using a new blade d...
Computer-assisted surgery has been more and more widely used in craniofacial surgery in recent years. It is useful in many situations: stereolithographic models, surgical simulations of osteotomies an...
Pelvic sagittal inclination (PSI) significantly affects the femoral head coverage by the acetabulum in patients with developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH), while no reports have quantified PSI in D...
Congenital spinal deformities (CSD) are caused by early embryologic errors in vertebral column formation. Spinal cord malformations are present in approximately one third of patients, even...
Deviation of the big toe in valgus at the level of the first metatarsophalangeal joint is called Hallux Valgus. In case of significant pain especially due to a conflict with the shoes, sur...
Target of the study is to evaluate the reduction accuracy of 3D computer-planned osteotomies that are performed with patient-specific instruments. Due to the higher accuracy achieved it i...
The study is designed to evaluate the use of electromagnetic tracking in multi plane femoral osteotomies, namely extension derotation osteotomies. The goal is to raise the precision of the...
Developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) is one of the major disorder of the pediatric population with an incidence of 3 to 5 per 1000 children. Open surgical reduction of congenital hip d...
The cavity within the SPINAL COLUMN through which the SPINAL CORD passes.
Congenital defects of closure of one or more vertebral arches, which may be associated with malformations of the spinal cord, nerve roots, congenital fibrous bands, lipomas, and congenital cysts. These malformations range from mild (e.g., SPINA BIFIDA OCCULTA) to severe, including rachischisis where there is complete failure of neural tube and spinal cord fusion, resulting in exposure of the spinal cord at the surface. Spinal dysraphism includes all forms of spina bifida. The open form is called SPINA BIFIDA CYSTICA and the closed form is SPINA BIFIDA OCCULTA. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p34)
Sensory ganglia located on the dorsal spinal roots within the vertebral column. The spinal ganglion cells are pseudounipolar. The single primary branch bifurcates sending a peripheral process to carry sensory information from the periphery and a central branch which relays that information to the spinal cord or brain.
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
Congenital, or rarely acquired, herniation of meningeal and spinal cord tissue through a bony defect in the vertebral column. The majority of these defects occur in the lumbosacral region. Clinical features include PARAPLEGIA, loss of sensation in the lower body, and incontinence. This condition may be associated with the ARNOLD-CHIARI MALFORMATION and HYDROCEPHALUS. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, pp35-6)
Congenital conditions are those which are present from birth. They include structural deformities or loss of function in organs such as the <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->heart, gut or skeletal system. They can be corrected by <!--LGfEGNT2Lhm-->surgery, m...
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...
