The stress on the UIV and its adjacent vertebrae was higher from T10 to the upper thoracic segments than in the lumbar segments prior to the pedicle being fixed, which may be explained by the local anatomy; this is the transitional region between the lumbar lordosis and thoracic kyphosis
, where T11 and T12 (as floating ribs) have the greatest mobility.
One-stage posterior focus debridement, fusion and instrumentation in the surgical treatment of cervicothoracic spinal tuberculosis with kyphosis
in children: a preliminary report.
Cervical lordosis, thoracic kyphosis
, and lumbar lordosis are the major components of the physiological curvatures of the spine in the sagittal plane.
In patients with degenerative disc disease and disc hernias, there is a more flat spine, characterized by decreased thoracic kyphosis
and decreased LL.
--experimental group with reduction of thoracic kyphosis
< 42[degrees] (as measured between the C7 and Th12 and the apex of kyphosis
), with 55 girls and 69 boys;

When she was one year old, she had the skeletal manifestation, short trunk, and kyphosis
and the other systems involvement appeared during follow-up.
Woods, M.D., from the University of California in San Diego, and colleagues examined the correlation between Cobb angle of kyphosis
from lateral spine radiographs and pattern of self-reported HT use during the previous 15 years.
"Women who reported the early use of HT were less likely to develop age-related kyphosis
, and the protective benefits continued even after stopping HT", said Dr.
Ankylosing spondylitis (AS) is a chronic inflammatory seronegative arthropathy that progressively affects the axial skeleton, leading to a characteristic spinal kyphotic deformity in its later stages. Severe deformities cause muscle fatigue, an inability to look straight ahead, and functional disabilities.,,, Surgical correction is necessary in many patients with AS kyphosis
to restore sagittal balance and improve the quality of life.,,,
The largest majority of challenges Langgle sees in his practice are structural issues with the neck, called Cervical Kyphosis
. This can cause chronic headaches, that many times are not associated with posture issues by traditional medical doctors.
Consequences of these imbalances are forward head posture, thoracic kyphosis
, pronated foot, excessive pelvic tilt, rounded shoulder, and so on.
