Effect of Orthotic Treatment on Curve Correction and Cardio Respiratory Functions in Congenital Scoliosis with Single-Level Hemi Vertebrae

Hasan Md Arif Raihan, Poly Ghosh

Background: The natural world of congenital scoliosis with hemi vertebrae is changeable, especially when it is combined with a unilateral unsegmental bar. Orthotic treatment’s primary aim is to stop further curve progression. The aim of this study is to find the effect in treating congenital scoliosis with single-level hemi vertebrae using orthotic interventions on curve correction and its cardio respiratory functions.

Case description and method: A 14 years old with single-level hemi-vertebrae related congenital scoliosis tookunder non-operative treatment at his body with an average supplement period of 2 years. Spinal orthosis (moulded-TLSO, high Profile Boston Brace) was fitted on the patient according to SRS guidelines. Breathe cardio-respiratory data analysis and the metabolic data analysis are done through the COSMED-Srl-Italy,K4B2 respectively.

Finding: The cardio-respiratory table and graph established a significantly better result in congenital scoliosis with spinal orthosis. Orthotic treatment gives good result over only physiotherapy treatment in term of curve progression and correction.

Outcomes and conclusion: The case study shows that high profile Boston brace can stop curve progression in the case of congenital scoliosis without any adverse effect on cardio-respiratory parameters in hemi vertebrae patient.
