This 3D video showcases the surgical techniques for patients with proximal junctional kyphosis. The surgical repair for patients with proximal junctional kyphosis is an individualized approach depending on patient history and imaging with adequate surgical measurements. This video will shed light on two cases with proximal junctional kyphosis and the method taken for their repair. The first case is of an 11-year-old female known to have osteogenesis imperfecta and status post T5–L3 posterior spinal fusion with segmental instrumentation. The patient underwent change of older instruments and scoliosis repair, with full correction on postoperative x-ray. The second patient is a 16-year-old male known to have cerebral palsy and kyphoscoliosis status post spinal fusion. The patient underwent scoliosis repair surgery with replacement of old instrumentation and scoliosis correction.
