BACKGROUND: There is ongoing controversy about the routine use of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) preoperatively in patients with presumed idiopathic scoliosis (IS). Routine MRI can help identify possible causes for the deformity and detect anomalies which could complicate deformity surgery. However, routine MRI increases health care costs significantly and may reveal mild variations from normal without clinical relevance, that can still lead to anxiety and influence decision making...

BACKGROUND: Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) patients can present with scoliosis which can be treated with serial cast correction (SCC) or with growth friendly surgery (GFS). This study's purpose was to describe the results of SCC as well as GFS for PWS patients with early-onset scoliosis (EOS). METHODS: PWS patients were identified from 2 international multicenter EOS databases. Scoliosis, kyphosis, spine height (T1-S1), right/left hemithoracic heights/widths (RHTH, LHTH, RHTW, LHTW) were measured pretreatment, postoperation, and at 2-year follow-up...

BACKGROUND: Chronic childhood disease has a major impact on health related quality of life. Caring for a child with a chronic illness is well documented but the specific experiences of parents who care for children with Early Onset Scoliosis (EOS), a rare but devastating illness, has not been explored. Numerous studies have described the interrelated psychological, financial, social, physical and logistical factors that impact on the experience of the care giver role with various diseases, but in the case of EOS, limited studies have been conducted about the parental experience...

BACKGROUND: Growth-friendly surgery has high complication rates. The Complication Severity Score for growth-friendly surgery was developed to maintain consistency while reporting complications as part of research in this rapidly evolving field. This study evaluates the interrater and intrarater reliability of this complication classification system. METHODS: After Institutional Review Board approval, complications during treatment for early onset scoliosis were identified from a prospectively collected database...

Spine-based fixation of magnetically controlled lengthening devices has been successfully performed for children with early-onset scoliosis. However, spinal manipulation may lead to ossifications, stiffness, and autofusion as previously described. To avoid these problems, a surgical technique combining bilateral externally controlled magnetic device implantation with a rib cradle and pelvic hook fixation was introduced by us in 2011. By using a bilateral single-rib or double-rib cradle fixation and a pelvic hook, the magnetic device is percutaneously inserted...

Background: This study is a single centre retrospective review of prospectively collected data. The 'law of diminishing returns' describes the number of lengthening episodes that a traditional growth rod (TGR) can undergo before stiffness across the construct prevents further increases in overall length. It is unclear whether this will affect MCGR when used in the management of early onset scoliosis (EOS). Methods: A retrospective review of prospectively collected data on the experience of MCGR lengthening in a heterogenous cohort of children with EOS from a single centre...

Objective: To analyse the biomechanical effects on adjacent segments of different growing-rod (GR) fixation in early onset scoliosis through a finite element analysis method. Methods: A severe early-onset scoliosis patient was selected and the pre-operation and post-GR-operation (Upper instrumented levels: T(4), T(5). Lower instrumented levels: L(3), L(4)) whole spine 3-dimentional CT scan data were collected to build the finite models. Based on the different models, biomechanical differences on adjacent segments were analysed...

Options to treat early-onset scoliosis include guided-growth systems with sliding action between rods and pedicle screws. The wear was previously measured in an in vitro test, and in this in vivo rabbit model, we evaluated the local and systemic biological response to the stainless steel debris. Compared to the previous study, a relatively higher volume of representative wear particles with a median particle size of 0.84 µm were generated. Bolus dosages were injected into the epidural space at L4-L5 for a minimum of 36 rabbits across three treatment groups (negative control, 1...

BACKGROUND: Magnetically controlled growing rods (MCGRs) are increasingly used in the treatment of early onset scoliosis (EOS). Few studies have reported whether desired lengthening can reliably be achieved, or if prior spine instrumentation and large tissue depths affect lengthening. In this clinical study of EOS patients, it was hypothesized that increases in rod length would equal programmed increases, patients with prior spine instrumentation would lengthen less than patients without prior surgery, and larger tissue depths would decrease lengthening success...

BACKGROUND: Metal ions released from spinal instruments can cause localized debris and distribute systemically to settle on distant organs. Children with early-onset deformities live with metallic implants for a substantial amount of time. No research focused on metal distribution in growth-friendly instrumentations. The aim of this study was to compare age-matched growing rod (GR) and magnetically controlled growing rod (MCGR) groups to noninstrumented controls. METHODS: The study was designed as a multicenter, prospective, cross-sectional case series...

AIMS: Magnetically controlled growing rods (MCGRs) allow non-invasive correction of the spinal deformity in the treatment of early-onset scoliosis. Conventional growing rod systems (CGRS) need repeated surgical distractions: these are associated with the effect of the 'law of diminishing returns'. The primary aim of this study was to quantify this effect in MCGRs over sequential distractions. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 35 patients with a maximum follow-up of 57 months were included in the study...

BACKGROUND: Bacterial colonization of spinal implants may cause severe complications in patients with early-onset scoliosis. Correct diagnosis and detection of microbiologic formation is crucial to prevent delayed infections caused by bacterial colonization. The purposes of this study were to estimate the rate and risk factors of colonization of vertical expandable prosthetic titanium rib (VEPTR) implants in children and to compare the different methods for detecting microbiologic formation on the spinal implants...

The mutations of MYH7 (slow skeletal/β-cardiac myosin heavy chain) are commonly found in familial hypertrophic/dilated cardiomyopathy, and also can cause Laing early-onset distal myopathy (LDM), myosin storage myopathy (MSM), and congenital myopathy with fiber-type disproportion (CFTD). Here we report two cases whose diagnosis was hereditary myopathy according to clinical feature and muscle pathology analysis. High-throughput genomic sequencing (next generation sequencing) was performed to validate the diagnosis...

BACKGROUND: Postoperative surgical site infection (SSI) is unfortunately a commonly encountered complication in the surgical treatment of children with Early Onset Scoliosis (EOS). There is documented variation in the treatment of this patient population. Previous work building consensus for the approach to high risk patients (eg, neuromuscular etiology) has been promising. The goal of the current study is to apply similar principles to develop consensus-based guidelines for the treatment of patients with EOS...
