Brief Summary:
Evaluation of the efficacy of the K2M MESA Rail™ Deformity System at improving coronal and sagittal correction of the adolescent idiopathic spine deformity in comparison to the side loading DePuy Synthes USS II pedicle screw system.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis Device: MESA Rail Deformity System Device: DePuy Synthes USS II System Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
Evaluation of the efficacy of the K2M MESA Rail™ Deformity System at improving coronal and sagittal correction of the adolescent idiopathic spine deformity in comparison to the side loading DePuy Synthes USS II pedicle screw system. This is a single-center, single-surgeon randomized controlled trial with follow-up evaluations of patients conducted at initial follow-up (2 weeks to 8 weeks), 3 months, 12 months and 24 months post-procedure. Adverse events will be monitored continuously.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Active Comparator: treatment group (MESA)
Patients randomized to the treatment group will receive surgery with the MESA Rail Deformity System.
Device: MESA Rail Deformity System
The spinal deformity will be correction via a standard of care procedure performed by the principal investigator. The correction will be fixated with the MESA Rail Deformity System.
Other Name: MESA Rail, K2M MESA Rail, MESA, K2M MESA

Active Comparator: control group (USS II)
Patients randomized to the control group will receive surgery with the DePuy Synthes USS II System.
Device: DePuy Synthes USS II System
The spinal deformity will be correction via a standard of care procedure performed by the principal investigator. The correction will be fixated with the DePuy Synthes USS II system.
Other Name: DePuy, DePuy Synthes, Synthes, USS II, Universal Stainless




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Correction and Maintenance of Spinal Deformity (coronal) [ Time Frame: Change from pre-operative to 3 months, 12 months and 24 months post-procedure ]
    Radiographic analysis of the spinal deformity in the coronal plane at the indicated time periods will be compared to the pre-operative measurements (OVERALL CHANGE from baseline at each timepoint). Later post-operative measurements will be compared to the initial correction values to establish maintenance of surgical correction over time.

  2. Correction and Maintenance of Spinal Deformity (sagittal) [ Time Frame: Change from pre-operative to 3 months, 12 months and 24 months post-procedure ]
    Radiographic analysis of the spinal deformity in the sagittal plane at the indicated time periods will be compared to the pre-operative measurements (OVERALL CHANGE from baseline at each timepoint). Later post-operative measurements will be compared to the initial correction values to establish maintenance of surgical correction over time.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Back and Leg Pain 10cm Visual Analog Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: Initial follow-up (2 weeks to 8 weeks), 3 months, 12 months and 24 months post-procedure. ]
    The severity of back and leg pain will be evaluated in all study subjects using a 10-cm visual analog scale (VAS). The study will employ a 15% improvement for success. OVERALL CHANGE from baseline will be assessed at each timepoint.

  2. SRS-22 [ Time Frame: Initial follow-up (2 weeks to 8 weeks), 3 months, 12 months and 24 months post-procedure. ]
    Scoliosis and its treatment have a great impact on the quality of life of the affected patients. The Revised Scoliosis Research Society-22 (SRS-22r) is a specific questionnaire for spine conditions. It is applied to patients with idiopathic scoliosis, whose conditions and treatments have a great impact on their quality of life. The SRS-22r was created and revised with the purpose of evaluating this impact from the patient's point of view. The reviewed version contains 22 questions distributed into five domains: function/activity (FA), pain (P), self-image/appearance (SA), mental health (MH) and satisfaction with treatment (ST). The scores vary from 1 to 5, in which 5 is the best health quality of life of patients. OVERALL CHANGE from baseline will be assessed at each timepoint.

  3. Estimated Blood Volume Loss/Salvage Return [ Time Frame: Operative Data - to be collected immediately after case is completed. Estimated blood loss will be noted by the surgical/anesthesia team and this value can then be immediately collected. ]
    The amount of blood loss over the entire length of the surgery as well as salvage return volumes will be captured intraoperatively.

  4. Length of Hospital Stay [ Time Frame: At discharge (up to one week post surgery) - Once the subject has been released from the hospital, the length of hospital stay can be calculated using the intake and discharge dates. ]
    The length of hospital stay from the date of admission to the date of discharge will be calculated.

  5. Return to Work/School [ Time Frame: Initial follow-up (2 weeks to 8 weeks), 3 months, 12 months and 24 months post-procedure. ]
    The ability to and the time it takes for the subject to be cleared to return to work/school from the date of surgery will be documented. Once the subject has returned to the "baseline" status this question will not be asked.

  6. Return to Sport/Physical Activity [ Time Frame: Initial follow-up (2 weeks to 8 weeks), 3 months, 12 months and 24 months post-procedure. ]
    The ability to return to sport as performed by the individual patient pre operatively. Time to walking unaided, running, swimming, trampoline, contact sport, normal social interactions with peer group. Once the subject has returned to the "baseline" status this question will not be asked.

  7. Use of Analgesia Post-Surgery [ Time Frame: Initial follow-up (2 weeks to 8 weeks), 3 months, 12 months and 24 months post-procedure. ]
    The types and dosages of any analgesia taken by the patient post-surgery will be documented. Overall change from baseline (pre-operative medications) will be analyzed at each interval - anticipation is that use of analgesia decreases and/or ends after surgery.

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

AIS cases must be classified as a Lenke type 1 or type 2 curve. No cervical vertebrae are to be incorporated into the construct.
  2. Willingness and ability to comply with the requirements of the protocol including follow-up requirements.
  3. Willing and able to sign a study specific informed consent form or, in the case of a patient who is a minor, provide assent and the minor patient's parent/legal guardian provides written consent to participate.

  2. Previous posterior spine surgery (e.g., posterior element decompression) that destabilizes the cervical/thoracic/lumbar spine.
  3. Active systemic infection or infection at the operative site.
  4. Any sign of any spinal dysrhaphism (any cord abnormality).
  5. Co-morbid medical conditions of the spine or upper/lower extremities that may affect the thoracic or lumbar spine neurological and/or pain assessment.
  6. Metabolic bone disease such as osteoporosis that contradicts spinal surgery.
  7. History of an osteoporotic fracture.
  8. History of an endocrine or metabolic disorder (e.g., Paget's disease) known to affect bone and mineral metabolism.

  15. Severe obesity (Body Mass Index > 40).
  16. Physical or mental condition (e.g., psychiatric disorder, senile dementia, Alzheimer's disease, alcohol or drug addiction) that would interfere with patient self-assessment of function, pain or quality of life.
