Clin Orthop Relat Res. Scheuermann evaluated by surface topography”. He observed that the kyphotic deformity was rigid, and associated with wedging of vertebral bodies 2. While there is no explanation for what causes Scheuermann’s Disease, there are ways to treat it. In relation to the posterior approach in isolation, the debate still continues, as the results of literature are conflicting.

The frequency of complications varies depending on the criteria adopted by the researchers, but this has not been validated. The patients were given instructions and signed a term of consent before taking part in the study.

This uneven growth results in the signature “wedging” shape of the vertebrae, causing kyphosis. For a more viable result, a program of prospective, randomized work is needed, to homogenize the groups and eliminate differences in the sample. All the patients who did not have access to monitoring were submitted to the Stagnara wake-up test, after reduction of the deformity. Scheuermann’s disease can be successfully corrected with surgical procedures, almost all of which include spinal fusion and hardware instrumentation, i.

The indications for surgery were: We highlight the fact that the sample is still small, and the need for longer follow-up of cases, following surgery, as well as better training in the practice of osteotomies, and new studies to evaluate the real role of posterior instrumentation associated with Smith- Petersen osteotomy as a method of treating SK.

It has been proposed that this is the body’s natural way to compensate for a loss of breathing depth. O tratamento para CS permanece controverso.

Nossa amostra consta de 28 pacientes que foram separados em dois grupos conduzidos em momentos distintos. The natural history and long-term follow-up of Scheuermann kyphosis.


Normally, the damaged discs between the troubled vertebrae wedged vertebrae are removed and replaced with bone grafting from the hip or other parts of the vertebrae, which once healed or ‘fused’ will solidify.

Patients undergoing surgery for Scheuermann’s disease often need physical therapy to manage pain and mobility, however their range of motion is generally not limited very much. After performing the posterior closing-wedge Smith-Petersen osteotomies in the segments of the apex of the deformity, the stems were moulded and the deformity was corrected by the same vifose manoeuvre, with compression at the level of the apex Figure 3.

It is named after Danish surgeon Holger Scheuermann. For this reason, there are many treatment methods and options available that aim to correct the kyphosis while the spine is still growing, and especially aim to prevent it from worsening.

In Germany, a standard treatment for both Scheuermann’s disease and lumbar kyphosis is the Schroth method, a system of specialized physical therapy for scoliosis and related spinal deformities. The curvature of the back decreases height, thus putting pressure on internal organs, wearing them out more quickly than the natural aging process; surgical procedures are almost always recommended in this case.

Scheuermann’s disease

The diagnosis is usually made on plain film. Scheuermann’s disease is a self-limiting skeletal disorder of childhood. Nevertheless, it is typically pain or cosmetic reasons that prompt sufferers to seek help for their condition. A flexible probe was used to confirm the scheuemrann of bone in the upper, lower, medial, lateral walls and at the end of the access route schwuermann They will then often be required to wear a brace for several months to ensure the spine heals correctly leaving the patient with the correct posture.

Thus, for the variables that were considered normal, a parametric test will be used, in this case, the T-test, to test whether there is any difference between the means of the variables. The radiological exams were executed csheuermann each outpatient control follow-up visit, according to indication.

Scheuermann’s disease is considered to be a form of juvenile osteochondrosis of the spine. By using this site, you agree to the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. Thank you for updating your details.


InDrummond suggested that the diagnosis of the disease be based on adjacent wedging of two or more vertebrae 5. This page was last edited difose 11 Novemberat The surgical management of patients with Scheuermann’s disease: After follow-up, the patients were evaluated by the same Scheuermmann method; only three patients complained of residual pain, and the average postoperative score was 0. Isolated posterior arthrodesis presented significant failures, perhaps due to the lack of anterior support, inadequate initial correction, failure of the implant, fixation on the side of the tension, or due to insufficient length of the fixation 12, The titanium instrumentation can stay in the body permanently, or be removed years later.

J Bone Joint Surg Br. Vertebral alterations in Scheuermann’s kyphosis. In the selection of the levels of instrumentation, we considered the proximal level as the vertebra that represented the thoracic kyphosis transition with the cervical lordosis, generally T2 or T3, and the distal level of fusion as the most proximal vertebra that touched the posterior sacral vertebral line, generally from L1 to L3.

Murray et al 15 reserve the surgical option only for cases of unacceptable pain and deformity. After the follow-up, only one patient complained of residual pain, and the final average score was 0. The majority of studies do not show any difference between the sexes, and the incidence in men and women is similar, varying only in terms of the criteria for inclusion of each trial 14, However, these choices are hampered by the minor prevalence of the disease, and the restricted criteria for surgical indication.

The comparison between the degree of initial and final average kyphosis between the sexes of both groups is shown in table 2. The apex of their curve, located in the thoracic vertebrae, is quite rigid.
