Scoliosis Surgery Using the PASS® LP System

2014-07-23 21:11:43 | BioPortfolio


The purpose of this study is to find out the outcomes of using the PASS LP System to correct adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. This system is a unique set of spinal instrumentation used to surgically correct the rotation and deformity of the spine that is caused by scoliosis. Also, this study wants to find out the effects this system has on the physical appearance and quality of life for patients with scoliosis.


The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical, functional and radiographic outcomes following the reduction of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis using PASS® LP system.

The following will be evaluated

1. The 3D correction of scoliosis:

- Reduction of scoliosis in the coronal plane (Cobb angles)

- Correction in the sagittal plane (kyphotic and lordotic angles)

- Correction of the axial vertebral rotation in the transverse plane

2. The functional and aesthetic outcomes

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Reduced blood flow to the spinal cord which is supplied by the anterior spinal artery and the paired posterior spinal arteries. This condition may be associated with ARTERIOSCLEROSIS, trauma, emboli, diseases of the aorta, and other disorders. Prolonged ischemia may lead to INFARCTION of spinal cord tissue.

Pathological processes involving any of the BLOOD VESSELS feeding the SPINAL CORD, such as the anterior and paired posterior spinal arteries or their many branches. Disease processes may include ATHEROSCLEROSIS; EMBOLISM; and ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATIONS leading to ISCHEMIA or HEMORRHAGE into the spinal cord (hematomyelia).

Operative immobilization or ankylosis of two or more vertebrae by fusion of the vertebral bodies with a short bone graft or often with diskectomy or laminectomy. (From Blauvelt & Nelson, A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology, 5th ed, p236; Dorland, 28th 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).

A calcification of the posterior longitudinal ligament of the spinal column, usually at the level of the cervical spine. It is often associated with anterior ankylosing hyperostosis.
