The presence of a spinal scoliotic curve with imbalance and the remodeling of foramina and bony structures caused by CSF pulsation could be the possible reason of the multiple relapses of pseudomeningocele in our patient.
To the best of our knowledge, no study has investigated the CSA of LM in healthy (none scoliotic) adolescent or subjects with LBP via ultrasound imaging till now.
(7) The Scoliosis Research Society has established the Cobb method as the standard of measurement to evaluate scoliotic curves and their progression, because it is both simple to perform, and accurate when evaluating repeated measurements.
Since scoliosis is also prevalent in India and the status of pulmonary function in scoliosis patients is scant in India, it is pertinent to study PFT status in scoliotic subjects.
he following factors were found to be associated with injuries (p < 0.05): (a) range of motion (e.g., dancers with hip hyper-abduction are more prone to foot or ankle tendinopathies than dancers with hypo range of motion; (b) anatomical anomalies (scoliotic dancers manifested a higher rate of injuries than non-scoliotic dancers); (c) dance technique (dancers with incorrect technique of rolling-in were found to have more injuries than dancers with correct technique); (d) dance discipline (an association between time of practice en pointe and injury was observed); and (e) early age of onset of menarche decreased risk of injury.
"Rail provides the surgeon the ability--in conjunction with state-of-the-art screw technology--to optimally correct the scoliotic spine in the coronal and, more importantly, the sagittal plane.
(3, 5) In our case, the thoracic spine was normal with no scoliotic deformity; instead, the cervical spine was predominantly involved.
Lying on its side, with or without support, requires placing the main scoliotic condition spine with convexity of a superior curve .in this position the upper airways are placed under water and so the mere act of breathing becomes a therapeutic time, involving lateral flexion of head and neck, with a tendency to reduce bias scoliotics.
Application of the concept of double-sided (bilateral) segmental fixation of the backbone offered by Luque (1982) and improved afterwards (Dove, 1982; Dubousset and Cotrel, 1989; Lenke et al., 1992) has allowed to increase twofold the indicators of correction of scoliotic deformations and to lower almost half the loss of the reached corrective effect in the long-term (Luque, E., 1982; Dove, 1982; Dubousset and Cotrel, 1989; Hall, 1998).
Under Jean Dubousset, he started training in spine surgery and in particular on Scoliotic deformity.
