The complete excursion of the ossification before fusion is Risser 4. Risser 5 denotes fusion of the iliac apophysis to the adjacent ilium. Complete excursion (Risser 1 to 4) of the ossification takes approximately 1 year, while fusion of the completely ossified apophysis to the ilium (Risser 4 to 5) averages 2 years. Increasing degrees of ossification result in decreasing likelihood of curvature progression. To evaluate the various types of scoliosis, certain measurements must be done. Measurement of the severity of a scoliotic curve has practical application not only in the selection of patients for surgical treatment, but also in monitoring the results of corrective therapy.

Iliac fixation is the most powerful anchor to the lumbopelvic level. This may be done with a Galveston rod or an iliac post or screw. The starting point is the posterosuperior iliac spine, and the device is directed toward the anteroinferior iliac spine, within 2 cm of the greater sciatic notch (Fig. 2-34). The wedge created by the inner and outer tables of the greater sciatic notch gives very good purchase for the screw. Penetration of the greater sciatic notch risks injury to the superior gluteal artery.

The medial wall of the pedicle is closely bounded by the exiting nerve roots and the thecal sac. The rib head and its costovertebral joint and ligamentous complex lie lateral, protecting the major vascular structures. Superiorly and inferiorly, the pedicles are bordered by their neuroforamen and the nerve roots within them. Thoracic facet joints are similar from T1 to T11. The articular surfaces are flattened and are oriented primarily in the coronal plane. The orientation of these facet joints allows for mainly lateral bending.
