    Princess Eugenie's radiograph

    It looks very unusual... the fusion seems to start high in the thorax and go into the neck.

    Sharon, Yes, very unusual......

    I cant seem to find her scoliosis x-rays online? Have you seen them, can you post?

    When posting x-rays, both front and side views are important....

    Hmmmm. Just read an article highlighting her wedding and decided to come to the forum and saw your thread. Maybe this is old news to everyone but the article included this:

    "Eugenie's dress was cut in a deep V in the front and the back, a feature requested by the bride that revealed a vertical scar from her surgery at age 12 to correct scoliosis. She has said previously it's important for people to show their scars."

    I thought you would like to see that about the dress and scars...

    Ed - I can see the x-rays. I wonder if you need to be an instagram member to view???

    Ok, found a photo with the goods..... (See below)

    Looks like the bottom of her construct is around T7 or T8??? What do you guys think?

    That would be an awfully "high" thoracic scoliosis.....and helps explain the x-ray.

    Its hard to tell, perhaps a C7-T7 fusion? Jay Moe also has a high fusion,... fused up into the neck.

    Perhaps a rare British technique, and if you had to name it, I guess you would call that a.... "Royal fusion"?

    Suzie Bee, I actually wasn't looking at the low cut v in the front till you mentioned it.....that looks pretty good also. (smiley face)

    Hope things are well.....

    Ha ha, Ed. I never watch Inside Edition but did tonight 'in case' -- and yes, they show her scar pretty clear and close. Sorry, but it is in the back "V" of her gown. It was a nice little pitch about scoliosis (yes, they actually talked about it).

    I am ok. My CMT has progressed a fair amount. Oh darn. And I had my '2 year' scoli appt. a few weeks ago and have developed a shift at L4/L5. Ginger W and I have been communicating anyway and now she will pass on info to me after her surgery this month. I may be looking, seriously, at revision but will try to put it off. If I'm ok I will just return in one year to see about how things are. I will need a CT scan as I have SS hardware.

    I thought of you just this past week. Went to Tahoe - memorial service for my brother. The weather was perfect. We were at South Lake Tahoe... boat ride, nice lodge, loving family gathered. It was a favorite place for my brother in his youth. Then drove down 395 to Ridgecrest to visit my MIL. Thanks for asking.

    I didn't click on your link until after posting, then realized it was a photo showing the scar. Maybe you can see the x-rays here... (above)
