  1. 1. Scoliosis in cerebral palsy

    Author : Katina Pettersson; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cerebral pares; scoliosis; Risk factors; Braces; CPCHILD; RELIABILITY; Validity; CHILDREN; Adults;

    Abstract : BackgroundIndividuals with cerebral palsy (CP) have an increased risk for scoliosis, especially those with low gross motor function, affecting both quality of life and overall function. The aims were to increase the knowledge on the development of, and predictors for scoliosis and the use of spinal orthoses in individuals with CP, and also to evaluate the Caregiver Priorities and Child Health Index of Life with Disabilities (CPCHILD) questionnaire to examine health-related quality of life (HRQoL).

  2. 2. Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis : A Deformity in Three Dimensions

    Author : Ludvig Vavruch; Hans Tropp; Daniel Forsberg; Nils Dahlström; Staffan Wirell; Paul Gerdhem; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Scoliosis is a complex three-dimensional deformity of the spine. Even though it has been known for centuries, treatment of the deformity has focused on correcting only in the frontal plane. READ MORE

  3. 3. Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis. The Role of Low Dose Computed Tomography

    Author : Kasim Abul-Kasim; Malmö Diagnostisk radiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; low-dose spine CT; effective dose; screw misplacement; adolescent idiopathic scoliosis; outcome.; titanium screws; image quality; neurovascular complication; phantom;

    Abstract : Continuous implementation of new operative methods for correction and stabilization of spinal deformities in young patients with AIS demands a detailed morphological analysis of the vertebral column. CT spine according to protocols available in daily clinical practice means high radiation dose to these young individuals. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quantification of skeletal, muscular and kinematics parameters in scoliosis : methodological and clinical studies

    Author : Khaled Mohamed Diab; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Idiopathic scoliosis; new methods; scoliotic angle; vertebral body volume; intercostal muscle; ultrasonography; ground reaction force; centre of mass; centre of pressure; motor control;

    Abstract : This dissertation presents new methods derived for precise evaluation of a number of anatomical and functional variables of the complex thoracospinal deformity in scoliosis. By consensus the scoliotic angle at the frontal plane is measured on radiographs using the Cobb method. READ MORE

  5. 5. Posture, postural ability and mobility in cerebral palsy

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cerebral palsy; posture; mobility; walking; wheelchairs; assessment tool;

    Abstract : Cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common cause of motor disability in children and adolescents with a prevalence of 2-3/1000. CP is characterized by disorders of posture and movement with impairments ranging from mild to severe. The ability to control posture is an important prerequisite for all voluntary movements.
