Neurologic Injury in Pediatric Scoliotic Deformity Correction, pp. 535-548 $100.00
Authors:  Ahmet Yılmaz Şarlak and Bilgehan Tosun
There is an insufficient extent of data concerning the rate of neurological
complications in scoliosis correction.
Multiple risk factors related to the aethiology and pattern of deformity as well as
direct trauma by the surgical procedure are known causes. The chord is potentially at risk
in the correction of congenital kyphoscoliosis, adult scoliosis and in curves with
increased rigidity.
Either through mechanical or ischemic damage, the ultimate pathogenic event is a
secondary cellular injury beginning in the damaged level. Neurologic complications may
be divided into peripheral, cord and central types. As secondary surgical interventions as
well as high dose steroids only have limited success once iatrogenic damage to the cord
occurred; increasing hope had been directed to medical prevention. Different systems of
neurologic monitoring by means of somatosensory and motor evoked potentials and
wake-up test have been established to detect intra-operative deterioration of neurologic
Promising steps lie in methods of sitimulating reinnervation through growth factors
or in the area of stem cell research.
