  • Cervical Laminectomy With or Without Lateral Mass Instrumentation: A Comparison of Outcomes. [Journal Article]
  • CSClin Spine Surg 2019 Jun 14
  • Kim BS, Dhillon RS
  • CONCLUSIONS: In carefully selected patients with normal preoperative cervical sagittal alignment, stand-alone cervical laminectomy may offer acceptably low rates of postoperative kyphosis. In patients with preoperative loss of cervical lordosis and/or kyphosis, posterior fusion is recommended to reduce the risk of progression to postoperative kyphotic deformity, bearing in mind that radiologic evidence of kyphosis may not necessarily correlate with poorer clinical outcomes. Furthermore, the specific risks associated with posterior fusion (instrumentation failure, pseudarthrosis, infection, C5 nerve root palsy, and vertebral artery injury) need to be considered and weighed up against potential benefits.
  • Lumbar Retrolisthesis Compensates Spinal Kyphosis. [Journal Article]
  • SDSpine Deform 2019; 7(4):602-609
  • Mihara Y, Togawa D, … Matsuyama Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: Subjects with lumbar retrolisthesis showed greater spinal kyphosis and worse spinopelvic alignments. Subjects with lower-generated lumbar retrolisthesis showed worse spinopelvic alignment and HRQOL than subjects with upper-generated lumbar retrolisthesis and multiple ones and those without it.
  • What Factors Are Associated With Kyphosis Restoration in Lordotic Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis Patients? [Journal Article]
  • SDSpine Deform 2019; 7(4):596-601
  • Newton PO, Wu KW, … Harms Study Group
  • CONCLUSIONS: Kyphosis restoration in patients with preoperative lordosis in the thoracic sagittal plane is possible. In this analysis, there was not one single technique identified as being solely responsible for the ability to restore kyphosis. The most predictive factor identified was the surgeon performing the correction, which is likely a reflection of focus on deformity correction in three planes, as well as a combination of methods used to restore kyphosis.
  • Correlations of somatic traits and postural defects in girls and boys aged 10-12. [Journal Article]
  • ABActa Bioeng Biomech 2019; 21(1):79-86
  • Wilczyński J, Bieniek K
  • CONCLUSIONS: Body posture is a psychomotor habit that is associated with somatic development, composition and body structure. Along proper body composition and somatic structure, shaping the habit of correct posture is much easier. Both in the prevention and correction of postural defects, one should gradually move away from the unilateral, usually singlecomponent therapeutic effect. An approach considering both somatic and morphological as well as neurophysiological, emotionalvolitional and environmental factors seems to be appropriate.
