Analyse de la correction tridimensionnelle du corset CTM dans la scoliose idiopathique

Abstract : Introduction: the CTM brace is one of the most frequently used brace to treat idiopathic scoliosis. The correction it induces in the three planes of space has never been studied so far. The aim of our study was to analyse the 3 D correction induced by the CTM brace in patients suffuring from idiopathic scoliosis. Methods: the 3 dimensional spinal reconstruction of 23 patients followed for idiopathic scoliosis has been studied before and after a treatment by CTM brace. The mean variation and the correction before and in the brace have been analyzed for Cobb’s angle, lordosis, kyphosis and the vertebrae apex rotation. Results: we found a significant variation (p<0.001) in the frontal and axial planes, with 64% correction in the frontal plane and 71% correction in the axial plane. A significant lordosis variation has been found (p<0.001), with an increased number of flat back (70% worsening). Conclusion: the CTM brace has already proven its efficiency. It enables a satisfying correction in the frontal and axial planes. Our results suggest however that it worsens flat back. Knowing that the sagittal plane is a crucial problematic in adult’s scoliosis, it seems necessary to follow the evolution of these flat backs during the wearing of the brace.
