Abstract

[automatically translated] The aim of the study was to analyze the relationship between attitude scoliosis and spinal defects of ocular convergence. In 40 young adolescent males aged between 10 and 12 years is a valuation of rachidee curves with scoliosis and a stabilometric examination by baropodometric Modular Electronics Platform "Diagnostic Support", from which the rate of change were obtained was performed, the deviation average coronal (x-mean), the average deviation sagittal (y-medium) and the surface and length of the Status-kinesigram. Furthermore, for the analysis of the functionality of the ocular receptor, they were made of the ocular convergence testing and the cover test. Based on the results of the physical examination of the spine and the ocular receptor function, they were selected 20 of the 40 subjects examined: ten with spinal scoliosis and abnormal ocular convergence and ten normal subjects (control group). For the statistical analysis of the data, presented as mean value ± standard deviation and minimum and maximum values, we used the Student t test for unpaired data. Young people with spinal scoliosis had all defects of ocular convergence of medium severity, while among the healthy, only two had slight defect convergence. People with scoliosis attitude, compared to healthy subjects, present in the test with open eyes significantly higher values of variation speed in mm / sec (4.31 + 3.54 + 1.01 vs 0.62, p <0.05 ) and the Status-kinesigram length in mm (259.31 + 216.20 + 41.78 vs 39.16, p = 0.027). In the test run with your eyes closed you are not significant differences. The quotient of Romberg, while remaining within the lower limits of normal, was significantly lower in those with scoliosis compared to healthy subjects (119.30 + 165.63 + 46.10 vs 87.59 p = 0.043). The data of our study indicate that in patients with spinal scoliosis attitude, the likely role of the uncanny eye receptor, there is a greater postural instability that results in a higher work-tonic postural system. The spine, in its cervico-dorsal, in an attempt to dab the imbalance generated by alterations of the ocular convergence receptor,
