Connective Tissue Syndromes: Themes and Guidelines for the Spine Deformity Surgeon

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Connective tissue disorders affect all of the spinal elements. Accurate diagnosis is important to direct management of related system disorders. Marfan, Beals, Shprintzen-Goldeberg, Loeys-Dietz, Ehlers-Danlos, and Stickler syndromes are reviewed. Special attention should be paid at surgery to selecting proper fusion levels to avoid fixation failure and dural compromise.
