And Now for some news ….
Cervical Alignment and Scoliosis
Little information is available on the relationship between cervical sagittal alignment and health-related quality of life (HRQOL) in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients.
The aim of a study published in the European Spine Journal, was to identify relationships between postoperative cervical sagittal alignment and health-related quality of life in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.
The study concluded that changes in cervical sagittal parameters were significant after deformity correction in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients.
Correlation analysis revealed significant relationships between postoperative radiographic parameters and health-related quality of life. In particular, T1 slope and C2–C7 SVA were found to be significant predictors of health-related quality of life in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patient.

Cervical Spine Tumors
The aim of a study published in the journal Spine, was to illustrate the long-term follow-up results and discuss the possible factors that may affect outcomes of patients with cervical spinal nerve sheath tumors (CSNSTs).
Nerve sheath tumors are the most common neoplasms in the spine, but minimal information was published in the literature, especially when regarding to prognostic factors due to the benign nature.
The objective of this study was to present long-term follow-up results and discuss the possible factors that may affect outcomes of patients with cervical spinal nerve sheath tumors.
The study concluded that total resection could significantly improve the Local relapse-free survival and overall survival for patients with cervical spinal nerve sheath tumors, whereas malignant cervical spinal nerve sheath tumors was associated with worse prognosis.
Moreover, postoperative recurrence was an adverse independent factor to overall survival.
