Surgical Treatment of “Chin-on-Pubis” Deformity in a Patient With Ankylosing Spondylitis: A Case Report of Consecutive Cervical, Thoracic, and Lumbar Corrective Osteotomies
Kim KT et al. – This is the first report on C6 pedicle subtraction osteotomy (PSO) and spinal osteotomies in whole spine segments. For patients with a severe global kyphotic deformity, it is important to place the patient in a stable prone position so that corrective surgery can be performed on the thoracolumbar spine. To accomplish this, initially correcting the deformities in the hip joints and the cervical spine can yield excellent clinical results.
