REVIEW
Aaron P Danison, Darrin J Lee, Ripul R Panchal
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: We will review the recent literature concerning the necessity of supplemental fusion to spinal instrumentation and discuss if temporal spinal fixation is a viable option for the treatment of unstable spine fractures. Advancements in minimally invasive techniques offer an alternative approach to traditional open stabilization for unstable spine fractures. The use of minimally invasive surgery offers many advantages concerning operative morbidly; fusion is not utilized and instrumentation can be removed in a delayed fashion...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical treatment of spinal deformity is high risk in patients suffering from Parkinson's disease (PD). Several series have already reported a high rate of complications. However, none of these studies included more than 40 patients and none of the risk factors of complications were described. The aim of this study was to describe the rate and risk factors of revision surgery as well as the clinical outcome at the last visit in a large multicenter study of PD patients operated for spinal deformities...

BACKGROUND: Postural deformities in the coronal plane were frequent and disabling complications of PD, which reduces the quality of life of patients. This study aimed to garner greater attention to the Parkinson disease (PD)-related postural trunk deviations in the coronal plane by exploring a method for diagnosis because of the lack of any uniform diagnostic criteria and epidemiological studies. It also aimed to provide correlation data in the Chinese PD patients. METHODS: In this cross-sectional study, 503 consecutive outpatients with PD were enrolled who underwent standardized clinical evaluation...

INTRODUCTION: Since its introduction BMP has been utilized in populations with higher rates of malunion, such as adult spinal deformity (ASD) patients. Contradictory conclusions exist in spinal literature regarding the safety and efficacy of the use of BMP in this setting. Previous studies, however, did not distinguish deformity cases from spondylolisthesis or stenosis. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of BMP use in spinal fusion surgery for ASD. METHODS: 166 papers were screened after database search...

Recently the use of dissimilar metals in spine instrumentation has increased, especially in the case of adult deformities, where rods made from Cobalt Chrome alloys (CoCr) are used with Titanium (Ti) screws. The use of dissimilar metals increases the risk of galvanic corrosion and patients have required revision spine surgery due to severe metallosis that may have been caused by corrosion. We aimed to assess the presence of corrosion in spine implant retrievals from constructs with two types of material combinations: similar (Ti/Ti) and dissimilar (CoCr/Ti)...

BACKGROUND: Cervical spinal tuberculosis is relatively common in some developing countries. It erodes vertebrae and discs, which sometimes results in cervical kyphosis and myelopathy. However, to our knowledge, no studies have evaluated improvements to patient-reported outcomes among patients who undergo surgical cervical sagittal realignment after kyphotic cervical spinal tuberculosis has been treated by débridement and reconstruction. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: (1) Can a spine with kyphotic cervical spinal tuberculosis be returned to normal alignment and fused successfully? (2) Will patient-reported outcomes be improved with this intervention? (3) Are patient-reported outcomes correlated with realignment? METHODS: Forty-six patients with kyphotic cervical spinal tuberculosis were evaluated in this retrospective study...

REVIEW

Lumbar degenerative kyphosis (LDK) is a subgroup of the flat-back syndrome and is most commonly caused by unique life styles, such as a prolonged crouched posture during agricultural work and performing activities of daily living on the floor. Unfortunately, LDK has been used as a byword for degenerative sagittal imbalance, and this sometimes causes confusion. The aim of this review was to evaluate the exact territory of LDK, and to introduce another appropriate term for degenerative sagittal deformity. Unlike what its name suggests, LDK does not only include sagittal balance disorder of the lumbar spine and kyphosis, but also sagittal balance disorder of the whole spine and little lordosis of the lumbar spine...

STUDY DESIGN: Biomechanical cadaveric study. OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to determine the change in range of motion (ROM) of the human thoracic spine and rib cage due to sequential Ponte osteotomies (POs). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: POs are often performed in deformity correction surgeries to provide flexibility in the sagittal plane at an estimated correction potential of 5° per PO, but no studies have evaluated the biomechanical impact of the procedure on a cadaveric model with an intact rib cage...
