  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to find out the outcomes of using the PASS LP System to correct idiopathic scoliosis. This system is a unique set of spinal instrumentation used to surgically correct the rotation and deformity of the spine that is caused by scoliosis. Also, this study wants to find out the effects this system has on the physical appearance and quality of life for patients with scoliosis.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Tridimensional radiographic correction of the scoliosis in coronal, sagittal and transverse planes [ Time Frame: Preoperative, 6 weeks, 6 months, 1 year and 2 Years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Functional and aesthetic outcomes [ Time Frame: Preoperative, 6 months and 2 years ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Perioperative and postoperative complications [ Time Frame: Continuous during follow-up ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Enrollment: 79
Study Start Date: May 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: March 2014
Estimated Primary Completion Date: March 2014 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: Titanium rod
Titanium rods used as a part of PSF construct
Device: Posterior Spinal Fusion Device: Titanium rod arm used titanium rods, and CoCr rod arm used Cobalt Chrome rods as a part of the construct.
PASS LP Implant System is designed to contribute to correction and surgical stabilization of the thoracic, lumbar and sacral spine only. These implants are designed to stabilize the spine during normal development of solid bony consolidation which takes about 18 months. The internal fixation devices are composed of screws, hooks,rods, plates, cross links, connection and locking devices. The range of different sizes and shapes of the implants allows the surgeon to adapt to the pathology and morphology of each of his patients.

  • Low Profile Polyaxial Spine System
  • Pedicular Screw System
Active Comparator: CoCr Rod

Detailed Description:

The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical, functional and radiographic outcomes following the reduction of idiopathic scoliosis.

The following will be evaluated

  1. The 3D correction of scoliosis:

    • Reduction of scoliosis in the coronal plane (Cobb angles)
    • Correction in the sagittal plane (kyphotic and lordotic angles)
    • Correction of the axial vertebral rotation in the transverse plane
  2. The functional and aesthetic outcomes
