This is a survey to help understand the influences related to the decision for Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis treatment (observation vs. bracing vs. surgery). The investigator then plans ...
Degenerative adult scoliosis (ADS) results from age related changes leading to segmental instability, deformity and stenosis. Patients with scoliosis demonstrate an altered gait pattern.Fu...
This is a pilot study to lead to a larger prospective, randomized, controlled study of older adult (ages 50 and older) spinal patients with thoracolumbar/lumbar scoliosis evaluating improv...
Early Onset Scoliosis (EOS) is defined as scoliosis with onset under the age of ten years, regardless of etiology. It is a complex three-dimensional deformity of the spine which can cause ...
Aim of the study is to evaluate a new brace that has become available, the Peak Scoliosis Brace (Aspen Medical Products) designed to alleviate pain for adult patients with chronic pain sec...
Although corrective cast (CC) has been back in use for the treatment of early onset scoliosis (EOS), no studies have reported how clinically meaningful CC was in comparison with brace-only treatment (...
To provide the reader with a comprehensive but concise understanding of congenital scoliosis METHODS: We have undertaken to summarize available literature on the pathophysiology, epidemiology, and man...
Although the role of laparoscopic nephrectomy (LN) has been established, few studies have reported cases of LN in individuals with scoliosis. Here we report a case of right LN in a patient with severe...
The 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11.2DS) is the most common microdeletion syndrome in humans. It is characterised by wide phenotypic variability, including congenital heart disease (CHD), immunodefic...
In an ideal experimental setting, 2 randomized controlled trials recently showed the efficacy of physiotherapeutic scoliosis-specific exercises (PSSEs) for adolescents with idiopathic scoliosis (AIS)....
An appreciable lateral deviation in the normally straight vertical line of the spine. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Deformities of the SPINE characterized by abnormal bending or flexure in the vertebral column. They may be bending forward (KYPHOSIS), backward (LORDOSIS), or sideway (SCOLIOSIS).
Congenital or postnatal overgrowth syndrome most often in height and occipitofrontal circumference with variable delayed motor and cognitive development. Other associated features include advanced bone age, seizures, NEONATAL JAUNDICE; HYPOTONIA; and SCOLIOSIS. It is also associated with increased risk of developing neoplasms in adulthood. Mutations in the NSD1 protein and its HAPLOINSUFFICIENCY are associated with the syndrome.
A form of inherited long QT syndrome (or LQT7) that is characterized by a triad of potassium-sensitive periodic paralysis, VENTRICULAR ECTOPIC BEATS, and abnormal features such as short stature, low-set ears, and SCOLIOSIS. It results from mutations of KCNJ2 gene which encodes a channel protein (INWARD RECTIFIER POTASSIUM CHANNELS) that regulates resting membrane potential.
Autosomal recessive inborn error of methionine metabolism usually caused by a deficiency of CYSTATHIONINE BETA-SYNTHASE and associated with elevations of homocysteine in plasma and urine. Clinical features include a tall slender habitus, SCOLIOSIS, arachnodactyly, MUSCLE WEAKNESS, genu varus, thin blond hair, malar flush, lens dislocations, an increased incidence of MENTAL RETARDATION, and a tendency to develop fibrosis of arteries, frequently complicated by CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENTS and MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION.
