143 Possible Causes for Thoracic Lordosis

  • Osteoporosis

    This pain may continue long after the acute fracture has healed. 15 Patients develop thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis as vertebral height is lost.[web.archive.org] Correlation of back extensor strength with thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis in estrogen-deficient women. Am J Phys Med Rehabil . 1996 Sep-Oct. 75(5):370-4.[emedicine.medscape.com] The rib cage presses down on the pelvis, reducing thoracic and abdominal space.[web.archive.org]

  • Marfan Syndrome

    lordosis, and pectus excavatum, may lead to pulmonary difficulties that include restrictive airway disease and cor pulmonale if the deformities are progressive and untreated[emedicine.com] Besides affecting height and limb proportions, people with Marfan syndrome may have abnormal lateral curvature of the spine (scoliosis), thoracic lordosis, abnormal indentation[en.wikipedia.org] […] aortic root dilatation and dissection , which have historically been the causative factors in early patient demise.

  • Short Rib-Polydactyly Syndrome Type Beemer-Langer

    Abstract We present premature female twin fetuses with concordant extremely shortened ribs, short limbs, macrocephaly, median cleft upper lip and facial dysmorphism. Based on radiological criteria and the pattern of associated abnormalities, a lethal short rib-polydactyly syndrome (Beemer-Langer type) was[…][ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

    Radiographic analysis including proximal junctional angle, spino-pelvic parameters (cervical lordosis, thoracic kyphosis TK, lumbar lordosis, pelvic incidence, pelvic tilt[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] C0-1 angle, C1-2 angle, clivo-axial angle (CAA), C2-7 angle, thoracic kyphosis, lumbar lordosis, pelvic incidence, pelvic tilt, and sacral slope were measured.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Radiographic parameters such as sacral slope (SS), pelvic tilt (PT), pelvic incidence (PI), thoracic kyphosis (TK), lumbar lordosis (LL), horizontal distance between C7 plumb[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thoracic Neuroblastoma

    A case of an 8-year-old boy with thoracic neuroblastoma developing progressive thoracic lordosis after laminoplasty is reviewed, and a possible cause is suggested.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] To the authors' knowledge, there has been no description of a progressive lordotic deformity of the thoracic spine after this procedure.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Straight Back Syndrome

    Pectus excavatum or thoracic lordosis may be present. § Left parasternal pulsations are visible and palpable, particularly during expiration, in some patients.[medicine-on-line.com] The other aggravated aspects which also trigger the loss of lordosis are thoracolumbar kyphosis, hip flexion contractures, fixed thoracic kyphosis and pseudoarthrosis.[healthsurgical.com] Our lumbar spine curves inward, which is called lordosis, while our thoracic spine curves outward, called kyphosis.[nyboneandjoint.com]

  • Iniencephaly

    Other features include:- exaggerated cervico-thoracic lordosis deficient (short) or fused cervicothoracic vertebrae variable deficit in occipital bone the fetal crown rump[dailyrounds.org] […] of cervico-thoracic spine1.[sljch.sljol.info] […] spine: cervical lordosis partial or total absence of vertebrae fusion of the vertebrae imcomplete closure of the vertebral arches open neural tube defect, rarely closed defect[atlases.muni.cz]

  • Scheuermann's Disease

    Thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis angles were measured by the Cobb method at preselected time points and at final follow-up.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Radiological evaluation of Scheuermann kyphosis included assessment of thoracic kyphosis angle (TKA), lumbar lordosis angle (LLA), scoliosis angle (SA) and sagittal vertical[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Sagittal vertical axis (SVA), thoracic kyphosis (TK), thoracolumbar kyphosis (TLK), lumbar lordosis (LL), pelvic incidence (PI), pelvic tilt (PT), and sacral slope (SS) were[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • King Syndrome

    Thoracic kyphosis , lumbar lordosis , and scoliosis often develop as the condition progresses.
