Özet

Scoliosis in the adult is a disorder that involves a convergence of deformity and degenerative disease in the spine. It can be defined as a coronal deformity with Cobb angle of more than 10 degrees in mature patients. The treatment of adult lumbar scoliosis deformity requires a multidisciplinary approach and preoperative planning, and to be extended to the development of new treatment methods in the future along with the expected life expectancy. It often manifests with low back pain. Etiology of the disease is related with primary degeneration or continuation of a deformity from adolescence. The main objective of surgical management is to decide which patient is to be treated with surgical treatment, to evaluate the general condition and to analyze the comorbidities of the patient and to draw a treatment scheme considering the patient’s expectations.
