    heining or egg shell surgery

    Hello

    Anyone could give me references of the heining or egg shell surgery. It was proposed to my daughter. It means take out a hemivertebrae by posteriror way and fix with some pedicular screws and a titanium device.

    Please any comment will be really helpful

    Greetings

    Carlos

    Greetings Carlos...

    I think the surgeon is actually talking about a transpadicular eggshell osteotomy. Here are a few links that might be helpful:

    I couldn't find any great reference written for the non-technical community, but at least I found a drawing (Figure 27) here:

    That may be the single best set of illustrations on this subject I have ever seen.
