Re: Scoliscore - Quo Vadimus?
Thanks for posting this. I really need to do some reading about Scoliscore; it's not available in the UK as yet so I don't really know too much about it, though I know some of the consultants here are quite excited about it.
The Director of Communications at Axial Biotech contacted me a few weeks ago and said she'd be happy to answer any questions, so I'd be happy to pass on anything you'd like answers to
37 years old, diagnosed with infantile idiopathic scoliosis at 6 months old with curves of 62(T) and 40(L) degrees. Casting and Milwaukee braces until surgery at 10 - ant release/pos fusion T1-T12, halo traction. Post op cast and then TLSO. Further surgery at 18 (ant release/pos fusion extended to L3 to include lumbar curve, costoplasty) and 25 (another costoplasty). Fusion extended to L4 at 33 (XLIF with 4 pedicle screws and two short rods). Pre-op curves: 76(T) and 70(L). Post-op curves: 45(T) and 35(L). Diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome aged 34; scoliosis almost certainly due to this rather than being idiopathic.
