Clinical Analysis of Posterior V-osteotomy in the Treatment of Traumatic Kyphosis

Abstract

Objective: To analyze the effect of posterior V-osteotomy in the treatment of traumatic kyphosis. Methods: From August 2018 to August 2020, 40 patients with kyphosis were randomly divided into observation group and control group. Results: The postoperative Cobb angle of the observation group was (8.29 ± 1.24) ° better than that of the control group (15.68 ± 2.73)°, P<0.05; The preoperative Cobb angle of the observation group was (49.78 ± 4.15)° compared with that of the control group (50.11 ± 4.23)°, P>0.05;The incidence of postoperative complications and recurrence rate in the observation group were 5.00% and 5.00% respectively, which were lower than 25.00% and 30.00% in the control group (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Posterior V-osteotomy for traumatic kyphosis can improve Cobb angle, reduce the risk of postoperative complications and recurrence, which is safe and feasible.
