Little, J. Paige, Askin, Geoffrey N. , Labrom, Robert D. , & Adam, Clayton J. (2012) A computer model to simulate scoliosis surgery. In Stanford, Ralph (Ed.) The Spine Society of Australia 23rd Annual Scientific Meeting 2012, the Westin, Sydney, NSW.
Use of patient-specific computer models as a pre-operative planning tool permits predictions of the likely deformity correction and allows a more detailed investigation of the biomechanical influence of different surgical procedures on the scoliotic spinal anatomy. In this paper, patient-specific computer models are used of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients who underwent a single rod anterior procedure at the Mater Children’s Hospital in Brisbane, to predict deformity correction and to investigate the change in biomechanics of the scoliotic spine due to surgical compressive forces applied during implant placement.
