spine saggital balance

INTRODUCTION: The aim of treatment of scolioses is to reduce deformities and restore balance in the spine. HYPOTHESES: In rigid forms of scoliosis, associating anterior release could provide greater frontal and/or sagittal plane correction and improve balance in the spine. PATIENTS AND METHODS: This study compared correction and long-term balance on two planes between two homogeneous groups of idiopathic rigid scolioses treated with and without thoracoscopic release...

Functional Individual Therapy of Scoliosis--FITS concept may be used as a separate system of scoliosis correction, a supportive therapy to bracing, children preparation to surgery and also shoulder and pelvic girdle correction after surgical interventions. Taking into account the dysfunctions accompanying scoliosis, the authors of the concept propose an individually adjusted programme of exercises depending on a curvature angle and a result of clinical examination of a patient. On this basis both general and specific goals are set...

PURPOSE OF THE STUDY: Sagital balance of the spine is a fundamental element necessary for understanding spinal disease and instituting proper treatment. The aim of this prospective work was to establish the physiological values of pelvic and spinal parameters of sagital balance of the spine and to investigate their interactions. MATERIAL AND METHOD: Pelvic and spinal parameters were measured on the standing radiographs of 250 healthy volunteers. The following parameters were measured on lateral views including the head, the spine and the pelvis: lumbar lordosis, thoracic kyphosis, sagital tilt at T9, sacral inclination, pelvic incidence, pelvic version, intervertebral angulation, and the vertebral cuneiformization from T9 to S1...

Attempts at segmental correction and fixation of the vertebral column usually result in biomechanical instability, defined as an alteration of any two of the longitudinal mechanical columns. This leads to a system that involves all three columns to restore stability to the spine. The use of specially-designed interpeduncular screws bilaterally and segmentally permits firm attachment of each vertebra through the pedicle and into the vertebral body, thus covering all three biomechanical columns. By attaching coupling screw drivers to each set of transpedicular screws, lordosis, kyphosis, and rotation can be corrected segmentally within the tolerance of disc elasticity...
