SPINECOR SYSTEM INTERNATIONAL MULTICENTER STUDY

The first publication on SpineCor results was published in the European Spine Journal (Eur. Spine J. 2003;12(2):141-148) whilst the second was in 2006 in Resonances Européennes du Rachis (Aug 2006;43:1773-1781) on 365 patients. The latest article, our third, was published in the Journal of Paediatric Orthopaedics in 2007 (J Pedia Orthop, Volume 27, Nr 4, June 2007: 375-379).

NHS DEGENERATIVE SCOLIOSIS CLINICAL TRIAL
This multi-centre clinical trial is being undertaken in collaboration with Sunderland University and Sheffield Teaching Hospital NHS (National Health Service) trust. The purpose of this trial is to investigate the effects of the SpineCor® Pain Relief Back Brace in over 50 year olds seen within the government healthcare system in the UK.
 
This trial is for male and female patients with a confirmed lumbar or thoracolumbar scoliosis of more than 19° Cobb angle who are suffering with low back pain and have a minimum ODI (Oswestry Disability Index) score of 32.
 
It is a randomised controlled trial whereby appropriate patients are randomly assigned into a ‘bracing group’ or a ‘control group’ (no treatment group). The two groups are then compared by studying the radiological and clinical effects of the treatment in the bracing group with the control group over a 2 year period.

This study started in February 2013 and is currently on-going.

SPINECOR VERTEBRAL ROTATION (VR) MEASURING TOOL STUDY

Several different methods are used to assess the amount of vertebral rotation on radiographs.  The Nash and Moe is the only method that is based upon observation alone and with only 5 grades of rotation could be considered a crude assessment tool.  It is for this reason that we have developed a more refined method of using images to measure vertebral rotation.  X-rays of a lumbar cadaveric vertebral rotation from 0-55° both clockwise and counterclockwise.This pictorial series of 111 images form what is called the “SpineCor® Vertebral Rotation (VR) Tool”.

The purpose of our study is to assess the validity of the SpineCor® VR tool by testing its inter and intra reliability against two other validated methods of measuring vertebral rotation; Perdriolle’s Torsiometer and Ramondi template.

Three Clinical Specialists in Spinal Deformity used each method; SpineCor® VR tool, Perdriolle’s Torsiometer, and Ramondi Template to measure the amount of apex vertebral rotation in 39 scoliosis curves.These measurements were repeated 1 week later.

The results of each of the 3 measurement methods have been compared and are currently being statistically analysed.
