The spinopelvic geometry in different lenke curve types of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis


Farshad, Mazda; Schmid, Samuel Luca (2016). The spinopelvic geometry in different lenke curve types of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Spine Deformity, 4(6):425-431.

Abstract

The Lenke classification is well established in differentiation of curve types in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) and guides selection of fusion levels. However, to date, it has neglected the spinopelvic parameters that have been associated with compensatory mechanisms in balancing the human erect posture and adjacent segment problems after spinal fusion. The aim of this study was to investigate spinopelvic parameters in different types of AIS curves.
