    Hello Doctor Corenmann, I first started writting to you lasst summer and it was with information I learned from you that I proceded here in Ohio to attempt to end the ongoing pain I was experiencine.

    I can’t thank you enough!!
    EXAM: XR SPINE SCOLIOSIS 2/3 VIEWS, 03/13/2021 21:25 PM

    COMPARISON: Compared to prior study dated January 12, 2021.

    CLINICAL INDICATIONS: s/p T4-sacrum revision

    FINDINGS:

    7 images obtained.

    Thoracolumbar spine: 12 rib-bearing thoracic vertebral bodies and 5 lumbar
    vertebral bodies. Anterior fusion hardware in the cervical spine is
    redemonstrated extending from C3 through C7. The hardware is stable with the
    left-sided screw at C7 backed out of the fixation plate and protruding
    approximately 8 mm. There has been interval revision of thoracolumbar fusion
    hardware. Previously hardware extending from T10 through S1. Hardware has been
    extended proximally with hardware now extending from T4 through S1. The
    additional hardware in the thoracic spine is intact. Kyphosis centered around
    T9 on the prior study is decreased measuring approximately 19 degrees,
    previously 38 degrees. No significant scoliotic curvature on the AP view.

    Pelvic Tilt: There is no pelvic tilt.

    I assume you presented the op report for the thoracic fusion.

    I am worried about the lowest screw backing out and irritating your esophagus. “Anterior fusion hardware in the cervical spine….with the left-sided screw at C7 backed out of the fixation plate and protruding approximately 8 mm”.
