Abstract

Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is a triplanar deformity associated with rib hump, especially when a principle thoracic curve is present. The aim of this study is to evaluate the results of AIS correction retrospectively, using simultaneous double rod derotation manoeuvre technique followed by en-bloc direct vertebral rotation (DVR). Fourteen patients were included in this study. Coronal and sagittal thoracic Cobb angle, global coronal balance, sagittal balance, rib hump prominence, Scoliosis Research Society outcome instrument score (SRS-22) and Walter Reed visual assessment scale (WR-VAS) values were recorded pre- and postoperatively and evaluated. Results were evaluated at a mean follow-up of 2 years. Good to excellent radiographic and clinical results were obtained in all patients. No major perioperative complications occurred. This technique has proved to be effective for surgical correction of the deformity in Lenke type 1 AIS with good clinical and radiological results and low rate of complications.
