The role of bracing, casting, and vertical expandable prosthetic titanium rib for the treatment of infantile idiopathic scoliosis: a single-institution experience with 31 consecutive patients. Clinical article.

J Neurosurg Spine. 2009 Jul;11(1):3-8

Authors: Smith JR, Samdani AF, Pahys J, Ranade A, Asghar J, Cahill P, Betz RR

There are few data on treatment results for patients with idiopathic infantile scoliosis (IIS). Thus, the authors have performed a retrospective review of their experience with treating these patients, particularly as newer technologies, such as the vertical expandable prosthetic titanium rib (VEPTR), emerge.

Infantile idiopathic scoliosis in the newborn.

Int Orthop. 1998;22(2):82-6

Authors: Ventura N, Huguet R, Ey A, Montaner A, Lizarraga I, Vives E

We have reviewed 7 patients (5 boys and 2 girls) with infantile idiopathic scoliosis which was present at birth and was diagnosed at ages from 1 day to 1 month. The mean follow up was 16 years. The objectives were to discover whether intrauterine forces play a role in the aetiology and to determine whether early treatment of a potentially progressive curve can induce resolution. Two infants were male conjoined twins and were united by skin over the posterior sacrum. Six infants had a rib vertebral angle difference greater than 20 degrees in the first radiograph and 5 had stiff curves. In 2 with flexible curves, the deformity disappeared by the end of the first year. The 5 with stiff curves were treated conservatively for 6 to 24 months. Growth has now been completed in 5; 4 have a straight spine and one developed an adolescent curve of 26 degrees. The 2 who are still growing have no scoliosis. Intrauterine moulding was only demonstrated in the conjoined twins. There was a correlation between the rib vertebral angle difference above 20 degrees and the rigidity of the curve. Early treatment of a potentially progressive curve can lead to resolution.

Congenital dislocation of the hip in infantile idiopathic scoliosis.

J Bone Joint Surg Br. 1980 Nov;62-B(4):447-9

Authors: Hooper G

The incidence of congenital dislocation of the hip in 156 children with infantile idiopathic scoliosis was 6.4 per cent, approximately 10 times its frequency in the general population. In both of these deformities there was a predominance of girls (eight girls: two boys). In unilateral dislocation of the hip the convexity of the thoracic scoliosis was on the same side as the dislocation. Eight out of the 10 children with both deformities also had plagiocephaly.

Familial infantile scoliosis associated with bilateral paralysis of conjugate gaze.

J Med Genet. 1979 Dec;16(6):448-52

Authors: Granat M, Friedman Z, Aloni T

A family with two sibs suffering from idiopathic infantile scoliosis associated with bilateral paralysis of conjugate gaze is reported. Although the parental consanguinity and the involvement of patients of both sexes in this family are suggestive of an autosomal recessive mode of inheritance, a dominant or multifactorial pattern remains a possibility.
