Abstract

MANCUSO FILHO, José Antonio et al. CHANGES IN THE SAGITTAL BALANCE IN CONGENITAL SCOLIOSIS CORRECTION SURGERY. Coluna/Columna [online]. 2016, vol.15, n.4, pp.272-274. ISSN 2177-014X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/s1808-185120161504147573.

Objective:

This study aimed to determine whether surgery leads to changes in sagittal balance in patients with congenital scoliosis.

Methods:

We retrospectively reviewed all cases of scoliosis operated in a tertiary hospital between January 2009 and January 2013. In all cases the deformity in the coronal and sagittal planes, kyphosis, and lordosis were measured, using the Cobb method, and spinopelvic parameters: pelvic incidence (PI), sacral slope (SS), and pelvic tilt (PT).

Results

A hundred and eleven medical records were analyzed, but the sample resulted in 10 patients, six of whom were females (60%). The average age was 13.4 years. In the comparative analysis between pre and postoperative, only the coronal deformity (12.37; CI 95% [7.88-16.86]; p<0.001), the sagittal deformity (12.71; CI 95% [4.21-21.22]; p=0.011), and the lumbar lordosis (9.9; CI 95% [0.38-19.42]; p=0.043) showed significant change.

Conclusion:

There was no change in the spinopelvic parameters of patients with congenital scoliosis undergoing surgery at IOF-FMUSP between 2009 and 2013; however, it was observed decrease in lumbar lordosis, and deformity angle in the sagittal and coronal planes.
