Abstract

Dear Editor,

 

Scheuermann’s kyphosis (SK) is the most common cause of structural kyphosis in adolescents. Surgery appears to be the only way to significantly improve the kyphotic deformity associated with SK. The need for the anterior procedure can be questioned when adequate correction and fusion can be achieved by a posterior procedure alone using pedicular screws with or without Smith-Petersen osteotomies.
