The diagnosis of idiopathic infantile scoliosis is based on the age of onset, the absence of any other spinal cord problems, the location of the curve, findings on physical examination, and x-rays.

Scoliosis sometimes shows up in very young children when a child also has: Chest deformities such as pigeon breast (when the breastbone is pushed outward at … After the history and physical examination, the next step in evaluating congenital scoliosis is obtaining x-rays.

Spine Infections, Tumors, & Systemic Conditions, (SAE07PE.90) Mehta Casting for Infant Onset of Scoliosis Mehta Casting is a type of body casting used to help straighten the spines of pediatric patients suffering with spinal deformities. The specific forms of osteopetrosis are caused by … A rigid thoracic hyperkyphosis defined by, anterior wedging of  >5 degrees across three consecutive vertebrae, narrowed disc spaces, differentiated from postural kyphosis by rigidity of curve (limited correction on extension xrays), most common type of structural kyphosis in adolescents, typical age of onset is from 10-12 years age with small subset adult onset, less common form occurs in thoracolumbar/lumbar region (see below), exact pathophysiology is unknown but several theories, osteonecrosis of anterior apophyseal ring, herniation of disc material leading to loss of anterior disc height, relative osteoporosis leading to compression deformity, altered biomechanics leading to anterior wedging and subsequent growth arrest, most widely accepted theory suggests that the kyphosis and vertebral wedging are caused by a developmental error in collagen aggregation which results in an abnormal end plate, compensatory tightness of anterior shoulder, hamstrings, and iliopsoas muscle, pulmonary issues in curves exceeding 100 degrees, back pain in adults that very rarely limits daily activities (mild curves with a mean of 71 degrees), curves >75 degrees are likely to cause severe thoracic pain, studies suggest at least some progression in 80% of patients but not often to severe deformity, long-standing compensatory lumbar hyperlordosis may lead to lumbar spondylolysis, curve from T1/2 to T12/L1 with apex between T6-T8, Thoracolumbar/lumbar Scheuermann's Kyphosis, curve from T4/5 to L2/3 with apex near the thoracolumbar junction, more likely to be progressive and symptomatic, more irregular end-plates noted on radiographs, less vertebral body wedging, increased kyphosis which has a sharper angulation when bending forwards, may have a compensatory hyperlordosis of the cervical and/or lumbar spine, tight hamstrings, iliopsoas, and anterior shoulder, neurological deficits rare but need full examination, anterior wedging across three consecutive vertebrae >5 degree, spondylolysis on dedicated lumbar films if patient has low back pain, determine sagittal balance by dropping C7 plumb line, supine lateral radiograph with patient lying in hyperextension over a bolster, can help differentiate from postural kyphosis, usually relatively inflexible on bending radiograph, controversial as to whether it is indicated prior to surgery to look for, will show vertebral wedging, dehydrated discs, and, any neurological symptom or deficit warrants evaluation with MRI, most patients fall in this group and can be treated with observation alone, kyphosis 60°-80° most effective in those with growth remaining, usually does not lead to correction but can stop progression, posterior spinal fusion ± osteotomy ± anterior release, less than the typical 10° sagittal plane correction per level given ridigity, technique of the past, rarely done now due to pedicle screw constructs, studies show 60-90% improvement of pain with surgery (no correlation with amount of correction), PSF with dual rod instrumentation +/- anterior release and interbody fusion, current recommendation is to include entire kyphotic Cobb angle and stop distally to include the first stable sagittal vertebra (first vertebra bisected by the posterior sacral vertical line), previously stopped distally at first lordotic disc but had high incidence of distal junctional kyphosis, usually a combination of pedicle screws and hooks, intra canal hooks may be dangerous at apex of curve as they can potentially compress spinal cord, Cantelever - usally two rods placed in top anchors then brought down to bottom pedicle screws, posterior spine shortening technique of Ponte, indicated in stiff curves where correction is needed, done by removing spinous processes at apex, ligamentum flavum, and performing facet joint resection, goal is to obtain correction to final kyphosis of 40-50°, in situ bending usually difficult to do and not helpful, motor and sensory evoked potentials must be monitored intraoperative.
