Speaking at the inaugural ceremony of the panel held at the Sanko University Hospital Anadolu Meeting Hall, Rector Prof. Dr. Dr. Güner Dağlı says they are happy to host scientific meetings and bring together academics and students.
Professor Dr. students. Dr. Dali says, “Every book you read will shape your outlook on life and shape your life. As a university, we have all kinds of opportunities for you to grow academically. ”
Emphasizing the importance of reading for academic success, Professor. Dr. Dali noted that students can improve their personal and professional development through books that they will read and guide.
Head of the Department of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation, Faculty of Health Sciences (SBF). Dr. Nevin Ergun says the priority in the treatment of scoliosis is to be aware, “We have organized this panel, which is an example of a multidisciplinary study, to realize this awareness. Thanks to everyone involved. ”
Chairperson of the panel, Professor Dr. Department of Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation of SBF. Dr. Najan Tugai mentions that scoliosis is commonly known as rotation within the spine itself.
Explains that scoliosis is a problem that, if left untreated, can lead to heart and respiratory problems. Dr. Tuğay said, “The incidence of scoliosis is increasing. Its frequency is increasing, but its awareness in society is low, but its risk is high, “he said.
Professor Dr. Tugai noted that adolescent idiopathic scoliosis should be treated by specialists and concluded by saying, “Scoliosis is a team work that requires the cooperation of many branches.”
Faculty of Medicine, Department of Neurosurgery, Dr. Erdal Yala, a training instructor, began by saying, “The main objectives of scoliosis surgery vary according to the type of scoliosis (idiopathic, congenital, neurogenic, degenerative scoliosis).
Dr. Train member Yaila listed the main goals of the treatment of congenital scoliosis as follows:
“To prevent the development of deformities and neural deficits (deficits), ensure maximum physiological sagittal (longitudinal intersection that divides the body into two equal parts, right and left), coronal balance and segment fusion as short as possible. Lung capacity and maximum spinal length. It should be noted that fusion in the growing spine (it should be done at the right time) will not only impede the length of the spine, but also the development of the lungs. “
The age, type of inconsistency and localization are the most important parameters when determining the time of surgical treatment, said Dr. Trainer Yala summarizes the indications for surgery on idiopathic scoliosis as follows:
Curvature with cob angle (angle measuring the degree of scoliosis) is greater than 45-50 degrees, in which case sagittal contour is impaired, i.e. lumbar kyphosis and thoracolombar kyphosis, skeletal maturity is not reached, curvature is more than 40 degrees. In patients with problems such as irreversible curvature and lower back and back pain that cannot be controlled by conservative methods, pulmonary function is impaired in the thoracic curve. “
Mentioning that the distortion has a significant psychological effect on the patient, said. Train member Yala shared the following information:
“Surgical options include posterior fusion, anterior fusion, combined anterior-posterior fusion, hemivortibra excision, and spinal osteotomy fusion. In conclusion, spinal deformity may be a single spinal pathology, or it may be a complex disorder involving pathology of multiple vertebrae, ribs, or pelvis. The coronal, sacral, and axial planes should be evaluated with the sacrum, pelvis, and spine.
Congenital spinal deformities include multiple organ pathology. The type of treatment determines the patient’s age, nervous condition, etiology of the deformity, location of the deformity, cosmetic expectations, and the likelihood of progression of the deformity. Physical examination, in addition to neurological examination, should be performed on vertebral alignment and posture of the buttocks in front and side curvature, so that the whole body can be seen.
OPR, an orthopedics and traumatology specialist at Sanko University Hospital. Dr. Levant Bostansi, in his presentation entitled “The Pathophysiology and Diagnosis of Scoliosis”, emphasized that scoliosis is the most common spinal deformity, usually diagnosed during growth, can negatively affect a person’s life if left untreated, and only three.
Scoliosis can be caused by a structural disorder of the spine, it can also develop due to spinal cord injury, OPR. Dr. Bonstansi says, “Non-structural scoliosis can improve partially over time. Structural scoliosis often occurs as an idiopathic scoliosis for unknown reasons, but can also lead to disorders such as neurological diseases, connective tissue disorders, infections and neoplastic conditions.”
ANzge Özer, a physiotherapist in the SANKO University Graduate Education Institute’s Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Masters program, reminded with a thesis that the general goal of the non-surgical approach to the treatment of scoliosis is to stop the progression of curvature and the need for surgery.
Özer said, “Exercises defined as scoliosis-specific physiotherapy exercises are methods of exercise that are individually adapted to the characteristics of a person’s curvature. It can be a standalone treatment option, or it can be applied in combination with corset treatment and surgical treatment.
The symposium was conducted by Dilara Bozkart, a 4th year student of SBF Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Department at SANKO University, and Prof. Dr. Dean of the Faculty of Health Sciences. Dr. Turkin Pasinliolu, Deputy Dean. Coaching member Deniz Mıhçıoğlu, academics and students were present.
