Lung function asymmetry in children with congenital and infantile scoliosis.

Spine J. 2008 Jul-Aug;8(4):639-44

Authors: Redding G, Song K, Inscore S, Effmann E, Campbell R

Progressive scoliosis alters lung function by reducing chest wall compliance and excursion and rotating intrathoracic contents, producing an increasingly asymmetric lung size. The effect of this distortion on regional lung perfusion and ventilation has not been described in children with congenital and infantile forms of scoliosis. The severity of scoliosis is often described by the Cobb angle of the spine, but the relationship between Cobb angle and lung function asymmetry between concave and convex lungs has not been described in this group of children.

Rev Chir Orthop Reparatrice Appar Mot. 1979 Dec;65(8):421-31

Authors: Dunoyer J, de Leobardy L, Valette C, Mechin JF

35 cases of infantile scoliosis were studied most of whom were followed for more than 10 years. In 11 instances, the scoliosis was present in the new born. The results are compared with those obtained by other authors. The authors consider that the signs found at the first examination as described by Mehta are not reliable enough and that the subsequent evolution of the curve is important. They have observed totally regressive and partially regressive cases. They are also found that right thoraco-lumbar curves in girls were common. Criteria for a more reliable prognosis are put forward.

Vertebral hyperostosis, ankylosed vertebral fracture and atlantoaxial rotatory subluxation in an elderly patient with a history of infantile idiopathic scoliosis; a case report.

J Med Case Reports. 2007;1:25

Authors: Al Kaissi A, Zwettler E, Roetzer KM, Haller J, Varga F, Klaushofer K, Grill F

ABSTRACT: This is a case report of a 48-year-old-woman with scoliosis since early childhood. Recent radiographic spinal assessment revealed the presence of distinctive spinal abnormalities. To the best of our knowledge this is the first clinical report describing a constellation of unusual changes in an elderly woman with a history of infantile idiopathic scoliosis.

Chir Narzadow Ruchu Ortop Pol. 1996;61(6):535-41

Preliminary results of multistage surgical treatment for idiopathic infantile scoliosis with the use of C-D and TSRH instrumentation are presented. Material included 24 patients who had from 1 to 6 distractions of concave side of the curvature with an immediate mean correction of 50%. The age at the operation ranged from 5 to 13 years. There were 21 girls and 3 boys, thoracic curves were predominantly right sided and exceeded 100 degrees measured by Cobb method.
