[USPRwire, Sun Nov 11 2018] The treatment for scoliosis has evolved with time owing to various developments in the healthcare sector and advanced treatment alternatives such as fusionless scoliosis surgery flooding the industry.
Vertebral Body Tethering (VBT), also known as fusionless surgery, is offered by Dr Trobisch and his team at the Eifelklinik clinic in Simmerath, and it preserves flexibilty and growth by not stiffening the spine.
For many years, fusionless surgery has been used to treat infantile and juvenile idiopathic scoliosis.
Thus, the three-dimensional, fusionless modulation of spinal growth described in this study represents advancement over previous tethering techniques, and the curve shape of this model is more similar to scoliosis observed in patients [Figure 9].
There are now "fusionless" options on the surgical market for those with scoliosis and these options are growing in popular interest; however, since it is so new, there is not as much research on the topic.
The literature available explains the different types of surgeries whether they are implementation and fusion strategies or fusionless strategies.
(2,3) In order to address these concerns, "fusionless" techniques have recently been implemented with varied success and are gaining increased interest.
Among the topics are comparing two bone surrogates for interbody device subsidence testing, the wear simulation of total disc arthoplasties, developing a more physiological loading protocol for spine in vitro flexibility testing, a vertebrectomy model for the mechanical assessment of fusionless scoliosis growth rods, and evaluating an alternative fixture for testing extra discal motion preserving implants.
Biotechnology research may in the future lead to a change from fusion procedures to fusionless systems that replace spinal structures instead of adding extra instrumentation.
Vertebral Body Tethering (VBT), also known as fusionless surgery preserves flexibilty and growth by not stiffening the spine.
She underwent Vertebral Body Tethering (VBT), also known as fusionless surgery, which preserves flexibility and growth by not stiffening the spine.
The spine section includes review articles on two pertinent topics in spine surgery: the use of bone grafts in the lumbar spine and fusionless surgery in scoliosis.
