Özet

Introduction: There are two main accepted reasons of Proximal junctional kyphosis (PJK) after Scheuermann's kyphosis treatment; overcorrection of initial curve and fusion that is too short proximally. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the incidence of PJK in patients who have been previously treated for Schuermann's kyphosis with a curve exceeding 70 and corrected under 40 according to proximal fusion level T2 or T3.
