Post-op Photo: Angular Prominence Almost Gone

Back to Image Library

This clinical post-op photograph shows a 9-year-old boy after he has healed from spine surgery to treat a severe angular kyphosis.  Here he is bending forward and demonstrates how flat his back is now; the pre-operative angular prominence is almost gone.  The patient was adopted from South Africa.  His medical history is significant for tuberculosis that caused severe angular kyphosis.  Before surgery, he had signs of early myleopathy (spinal cord compression) and hyperreflexia (overly active reflexes).
