Surgical Management of Severe and Complex Spinal Deformity: Chaoyang Experiences
Severe, rigid and complex spinal deformity, which includes congenital or idiopathic scoliosis and kyphosis with Cobb more than 90 degrees and flexibility less than 30% are the challenges for surgical management. The complex structure of the deformity in nature, compromise of pulmonary function, and deterioration of the patient’s health condition provide unfavourable surgical outcomes with a high rate of complications. For the last ten years, we have carried out a collective strategy for the surgical management of severe, rigid and complex spinal deformities.
The measures included:
- Pre-operative comprehensive traction protocol with staged corrective surgery;
- Modification of spinal osteotomy procedures to downgrade the osteotomies;
- Individualized precious pre-operative evaluation and surgical planning, as well as execution utilizing digital and 3D technologies.
These measures have achieved significant improvement in the correction rate, with a decreased rate of major complications.
