(Altb) Curvature of the spine

Advanced Kyphosis


Scheuermann's disease. Also called Scheuermann's kyphosis, this disease typically begins during the growth spurt that occurs before puberty

Kyphosis (kyphosis) is an abnormal, severe curvature and curvature of the spine that occurs in the areas of the thoracic. Professor Dr. Hani Abdel Gawad and his team conducted a study on the quality of life

Young people who suffer from curvature and severe kyphosis and have not been treated. This study was published in one of the largest international journals in spinal surgery.

Kyphosis may be associated with curvature of the spine or developmental abnormalities (Scherman's kyphosis), which is the most common, or kyphosis may be the result of a congenital defect in the vertebrae, which is one of the most serious cases, especially if it is accompanied by curvature, and the problem develops and is neglected until young age, and as the degree increases The kyphosis increases the pressure on the spinal cord, as shown in the picture

Does the severity of the curvature affect the risk of surgery?

Here we see a young man with a very severe kyphosis of more than 170 degrees, and this kyphosis puts pressure on all vital organs. Unfortunately, at this stage, the operation is extremely difficult and dangerous for the patient, and for this reason we advise against neglecting and reaching such stages.

Curvature of the spine and its causes

Kyphosis (kyphosis) has multiple causes. Kyphosis may be due to a congenital deformity in the vertebrae and arises from birth and develops with growth. Kyphosis may be alone or accompanied by curvature of the spine. The most famous type of kyphosis is the one that affects young people during the period of growth and begins at In children at the age of 10 years, it develops with age and is called “Sherman’s Kyphosis.” As the degree of Kyphosis increases, surgery is determined according to the examination and x-rays.

What is Sherman hump?

It is a curvature of the spine and affects children and young people during times of growth. Scheuermann’s kyphosis is completely different from curvature, and the incidence of it varies from 0.5% to 8% of children who suffer from Scheuermann’s kyphosis (ATP) to different degrees.

Kyphosis resulting from adhesive inflammation of the spine

It is about connecting the vertebrae of the spine to each other, so the spine becomes in the form of one body and not several vertebrae. The spine moves as one piece, and with time the spine begins to convex, and this convexity is not flexible.

Congenital kyphosis of the spine

It is a deformed or incompletely developed vertebra in a specific area of the spine that has caused a kyphosis and can be discovered immediately after birth or via ultrasound at the time of pregnancy.
Kyphosis may be accompanied by deformities in the heart or kidneys, and sometimes in the pharynx or anus
