Retrospective case series with comparative analysis.
A retrospective review was conducted of 57 consecutive patients (26 female; mean age: 16.6 years) who underwent posterior or combined anterior-posterior spinal fusion for neuromuscular scoliosis (NMS)...
Achieving fusion at the lumbosacral junction poses many technical challenges. No data exist in the literature comparing radiographic or clinical outcomes between the different surgical techniques of t...
We present an 11-year-old girl with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis who underwent uncomplicated posterior spinal fusion and developed transient upper extremity weakness secondary to a cervical cord in...

The main objective of the present study was to analyse the efficacy and feasibility of surgical management for patients with mono-segmental lumbar or lumbosacral pyogenic vertebral osteomyelitis (PVO)...
The primary purpose of this prospective study is to determine when adolescent athletes with idiopathic scoliosis are able to return to sports participation after posterior spinal fusion su...
Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) is a curvature of the spine that occurs in 1-2% of otherwise healthy children, and requires corrective surgery, posterior spinal fusion (PSF) in ~10% ...
The primary purpose of this randomized trial is to compare the efficacy of an ultrasonic bone scalpel (or osteotome device) with standard of care surgical instruments during posterior spin...

A condition characterized by shortness of the neck resulting from reduction in the number of vertebrae or the fusion of multiple hemivertebrae into one osseous mass. The hairline is low and the motion of the neck is limited. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Acute or chronic pain located in the posterior regions of the THORAX; LUMBOSACRAL REGION; or the adjacent regions.
The lumbar and sacral plexuses taken together. The fibers of the lumbosacral plexus originate in the lumbar and upper sacral spinal cord (L1 to S3) and innervate the lower extremities.
The GENETIC RECOMBINATION of the parts of two or more GENES resulting in a gene with different or additional regulatory regions, or a new chimeric gene product. ONCOGENE FUSION includes an ONCOGENE as at least one of the fusion partners and such gene fusions are often detected in neoplastic cells and are transcribed into ONCOGENE FUSION PROTEINS. ARTIFICIAL GENE FUSION is carried out in vitro by RECOMBINANT DNA technology.
