Overview

Demographic aging of population leads also to an increase in prevalence of degenerative disc disease, which can lead to formation of degenerative scoliosis, mainly in the lumbar region. This can be a source of progressive back pain, radicular pain and claudication symptoms with decreased mobility. This condition is often resistant to conservative treatment and becomes an issue of reevaluation of surgical treatment. Surgical armamentarium includes isolated decompression, decompression with short fusion, and decompression with long fusion and correction of deformity. Any impact on this complicated pathology is associated with high risk of perioperative complications, thus the risks and benefits of surgery should be carefully discussed preoperatively.

Keywords:

degenerative scoliosis – surgical treatment – deformity – short fusion – long fusion
