← Back Anonymous 2 | Juvenile Idiopathic Scoliosis

This 10-year-old female with new Juvenile Idiopathic Scoliosis (JIS) diagnosis had been having back pain for about a year prior to the procedure, and it was getting worse. Upon physical exam, her shoulders and pelvis were level, and she had a fluid gait. Adams forward bend test showed right thoracic and a left lumbar paraspinal prominence. Kyphosis looked to be normal.

Procedure completed:

  • Instrumentation: Stryker Blocker, screws, UNiD Custom rods, ROD RADIAL VITALLIUM WITH HEX 5.5 X 600MM,
  • Posterior fusion from T3-L3 with posterior column osteotomies at T7-8 T8-9 T9-10.

There were no intraoperative complications or changes in neuromonitoring.

Post operation: it was an uneventful recovery, and the patient is doing well.
