The screws were then introduced using the freehand technique – unlike the method reported by Kim et al 23 in which a drill was used to make the access route In Germany, a standard treatment for both Scheuermann’s disease and lumbar kyphosis is the Schroth method, a system of specialized physical therapy for scoliosis and related svheuermann deformities.

With an error of five percent, the variables sex, initial kyphosis, final kyphosis, correction degrees and follow-up months followed a normal distribution. The follow-up time ranged from 13 to 31 months, with a mean of Loading Stack – 0 images remaining. In addition to the pain associated with Scheuermann’s disease, many sufferers of the disorder have loss of vertebral height, and depending on where the apex of the curve is, may have a visual ‘hunchback’ or ’roundback’.

Stoddasd A, Osborn JF. Excess axial spine load due to heavy weightlifting may also contribute. Deforming dorsopathies Bones of the vertebral column. In the series of Lee et al 20 there were no complications related to the instrumentation.


No somatosensitive monitoring studies ciffose evoked medullary potential studies were carried out in any of the cases due to the lack of available conditions for their performance. In various case series, pain and deformity are adopted as the criteria for surgical indication 4,22, Scheuermann’s disease or spinal osteochondrosis: Archived from the original on Our sample consisted of 28 patients, divided into two groups, and operated at different times.

To resolve these problems, dual approach arthrodesis was proposed, with discectomy, release of the anterior-posterior longitudinal ligament, and intersomatic arthrodesis in the first phase of surgery, and arthrodesis and instrumentation in the second phase. Foram avaliados 28 pacientes divididos em dois grupos conduzidos de forma temporalmente distinta. Thoracic pedicle screw fixation in spinal deformities: Two other studies evaluating the posterior approach using the hook system showed loosening of the hooks in three cases out of 27, requiring two subsequent surgeries 4 ; in the other study, there was breaking of the stem in one case out of 30, requiring revision surgery and resulting in one patient with loss of correction, and pain Case 3 Case 3.

The titanium instrumentation holds everything in place during healing and is not necessary once fusion scheueramnn.

Decision making regarding Smith-Petersen vs. To apply the label of classical Scheuermann disease, one needs to meet a number of criteria Sorensen classification In the present study, we observed greater correction of the deformity with the double approach, while in the second group there were better results in the VAS pain scheuermznn, and a lower icfose of complications.

For this reason, there are many treatment methods and options available that aim to correct the kyphosis while the spine is still growing, and especially aim to prevent it from worsening. Its exact etiology is unknown but a proposed mechanism is by aseptic necrosis of the ring vertebral apophyses.


After performing the posterior closing-wedge Smith-Petersen osteotomies in the segments schuermann the apex of the deformity, the stems were moulded and the deformity was corrected by the same “cantilever” manoeuvre, with compression at the level of the apex Figure 3.

Correction of adolescent hyperkyphosis with posterior-only threaded rod compression instrumentation: Decision making regarding Smith-Petersen vs. All the patients who did not have access to monitoring were submitted to the Stagnara wake-up test, after reduction of the deformity. J Am Acad Orthop Surg. We highlight the fact that the sample is still small, and the need for longer follow-up of cases, following surgery, as well as better training in the practice of osteotomies, and new studies to evaluate the real role of posterior instrumentation associated with Smith- Petersen osteotomy as a method of treating SK.

The comparison between the degree of initial and final average kyphosis between the sexes of both groups is shown in table 2. An unnecessary source of confusion amongst clinicians and patients”. In the second group, the instrumentation was performed with posterior arthrodesis, where the difference was due to the osteotomies performed at the apex of the deformity of an average of five segments.
