Coil Embolisation

Coil Embolisation Adult scoliosis refers to an abnormal curvature of the spine in a patient who has finished growing. Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that affects approximately seven million people in the United States. The curvature can be to the right or the left side and also involves a twisting or rotation of the bones of the spine.Adult scoliosis can develop as the result of an untreated childhood curvature. Adult scoliosis can also develop in a patient without any previous history of a scoliosis. When adult scoliosis develops in a patient with a previously straight spine, it is called adult degenerative scoliosis. Adult scoliosis typically arises from a combination of spinal degenerative conditions including disc degeneration, compression fracture, osteoporosis, and spinal stenosis.
