Furthermore, to obtain a satisfactory correction, a two-level osteotomy may be required for some patients with severe rigid kyphotic
(43) Another study found that an anterior approach achieves improved correction of kyphotic

In these cases, the lumbar spine reverses its lordosis to become kyphotic
and the thoracic spine continues this kyphosis, resulting in rounded posture of the entire thoracolumbar spine.

(8,9) As mentioned in a National Cancer Institute (NCI) article for management of SCD, vertebral bodies bone marrow hyperplasia can lead to compression fractures which may lead to flattening and kyphotic

The angulation of the fibers of the diaphragm and intercostal muscles probably are altered in subjects with kyphotic
deformity, contributing to the inward movement of the lower ribs on inspiration.
Kiva is a circular implant for spinal fractures, proven in a randomized, controlled study published in Spine to restore kyphotic
