Non-Fusion Scoliosis Surgery

Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine greater than 10 degrees. A normal and healthy spine extends from the neck along the back to the lower back in a straight line. Scoliosis is a condition when spines change their location to the right and left side and can also rotate along their axis. Therefore it is a three-dimensional deformation. Scoliosis, which is present in 0.2-6% of the population, is the oldest known disease of the spine. In 80% of cases, the cause of scoliosis is unknown, as it can develop due to various reasons, such as trauma or congenital developmental disorders. Idiopathic scoliosis is the most common type of scoliosis and is common for 70-90% of cases. There is an opinion that scoliosis can be inherited. Despite the fact that scoliosis occurs both among boys and girls, the progression of the disease is more rapid among girls.

Symptoms of Scoliosis

A lot of research has been conducted because of this disease, many theories have been identified, but the exact cause has not been determined to date. During the development of the spine, no factors were identified that would directly trigger this disease. Therefore, parents cannot influence the development of this process. The disease occurs among 1.5% of schoolchildren. Scoliosis is known to grow as patients grow longer. Patients see a doctor after their scoliosis suddenly becomes noticeable. However, the curvature of the spine does not develop immediately, but over time. Sometimes scoliosis can be visible to the naked eye, and sometimes it can be invisible even when the patient is standing upright. The diagnosis of scoliosis is usually confirmed with the following symptoms: asymmetry in the shoulder, uneven shoulder blades, prominent hip, a large gap between the arm and body, the absence of a straight midline between the head and hips, protrusion of the back when bending forward.

What is Non-Fusion Scoliosis Surgery ?

For non-fusion scoliosis surgery, the most important factor is whether the patient’s body structure is suitable for this procedure or not. Thus, as the case for all other diseases, early diagnosis is highly important. During comfort-focused endoscopic surgical procedures, Access is made through small incisions and screws are driven to the vertebrae with a camera. Special threads are stretched on these screws and the curvature is corrected. Thanks to this method, children at growth age can maintain the ability of movement and growth with threads that are fixed to the screws. Height increase, which worsens scoliosis, is curable with non-fusion scoliosis surgery. Abnormal curvature is corrected by 60%-70% in surgeries that are performed during the developmental period. During the procedure, the spine is stretched towards the convex side with threads that are fixed to the screws and slight correction is achieved. While growth slows down at the area where threads are stretched, it continues at the other side as expected, and the curvature disappears spontaneously. With this method, the curve can be nearly 100% corrected in time.
