    You mention rotation and that reminded me that structual curves are always accompanied by rotation. If your radiographs are clear enough to see this, it might be possible to say if you did have a...

    The bottom line for me in re you is that the comment about you being fused to L2 as being likely to have spared your lumbar is a Candid Camera moment. I still can't believe a surgeon would tell a...

    I guess so but a surgeon would have to confirm.

    I also think a lumbar can get damaged to the point of needing fusion without the curve getting larger. For example, the non AIS degenerative...

    It is my understanding that having a curve remaining even in a compensatory curve can lead to disc damage from the uneven loading. That is why the issue of driving straightness through the lumbar...

    I guess the question is why did it only correct a little bit? Was it because you actually also had a structural L curve (and therefore a double major curve and not a T curve) or because the fusion...

    Yes of course. I certainly am not arguing against that. I don't think there are many surgeons who will fuse an entire lumbar on a kid whereas they would fuse that same curve ion an adult. Dr. Hey...

    Yes I mean fusion limited to the T spine but also a CURVE limited to the T spine. As I have mentioned, surgeons do not like to fuse lumbars in kids and sometimes will not and just fuse the T spine...

    While some ASD cases are probably due to selecting the wrong end vertebra, it seems like there is no right vertebra when talking about the lumbar. That is going to drive many revisions. Only the...

    Lol! Good point. Still it is quite amazing how she has avoided an extension. It may be related to her hyper correction. Her spine is pretty darn straight. Also she has syndromic IS as my...

    Even if it was 90%, it is still probably lower than the problems with not having the initial surgery or else there would be no initial surgeries.

    This is completely in keeping with my twin daughters, one fused in 2008 and the other in 2009. One was unaware she had a reduced ROM, they both can do ANYTHING, and they...

    I went back and saw you mention you are fused T9-L5.

    The potential revisions with this include needing to go to S1 and PJK above T9. As I understand it, the former would not surprise anyone but...

    I think the chiros wrote that paper to defend against the notion that they take a lot of radiographs. It's a self-fluff piece.

    You may have had growth remaining after your surgery and that is what drove the increase. It is called Crankshaft.
