Abstract

In-brace correction of the Cobb angle with RSC-CAD CAM compared with ‘hand made’ from the original author ORAL PRESENTATION Open Access In-brace correction of the Cobb angle with RSC-CAD CAM compared with ‘hand made’ from the original author Manuel D Rigo*, Dino Gallo, Robert Dallmayer From 7th International Conference on Conservative Management of Spinal Deformities Montreal, Canada. 20-22 May 2010 Introduction The purpose of the present study is the comparison of the in-brace correction in a group of patients with idio- pathic scoliosis treated with ‘CAD CAM’ RSC brace and a control group of patients treated with a ‘hand made’ RSC brace (from the original author, Rigo). Background RSC braces built with informatics assistance (CAD CAM) have shown similar in-brace corrections than ‘hand made’ RSC; however this has never been com- pared in matched samples. Method Case control study. Source: Ortholutions database from 2008 to 2009. Inclusion criteria: Patients with idiopathic scoliosis, no previous treatment (brace), younger than 15 and Risser 3 or less. Case group: 41 patients (2 males and 39 females) treated with CAD CAM RSC brace full filed the inclusion criteria. Control group: all the 27 patients (1 male 26 females) treated with ‘hand made’ RSC brace that full filed the inclusion criteria as well. Mean age was not different in the case group 11.3 y (SD 1.9) compared with the control 11.8 y (SD 2.1). Risser sign was higher (p< 0.005) in the case group 0.8 (SD 1) in comparison with the control group 0.2 (SD 0.6). The Cobb angle out-brace of the major curve was not significantly different in both groups (case= 35.2° + 13°; control= 33° + 7.7°). Minor curve was not different (case= 26.4° +/- 11.8°; control=28.8° +/- 7.2°). Results The in-brace Cobb angle of the major curve was 18.6° +/-14.1° in the case group and 16.4° +/- 9.9° in the con- trol (NS). Minor curve measured 15.5° +/- 12.9° in the case group and 18.4° +/- 6.9° in the control (NS). In- brace correction of the major
