Study Design. Cross-sectional. Objective. The aim of this study was to describe the self-experienced trunk appearance in individuals with and without idiopathic scoliosis. Summary of Background Data. Idiopathic scoliosis is the most common spinal deformity. A large scoliotic deformity increases the risk of back pain and pulmonary dysfunction. The deformity has also a psychological impact. Methods. The pictorial part of the spinal appearance questionnaire (pSAQ) was administered to 1416 individuals with idiopathic scoliosis (386 untreated, 529 brace treated, 501 surgically treated) and 272 individuals without sco...

Conclusion: Our data suggest that scoliosis correction with sublaminar fixation is not inferior to treatment with hooks and/or pedicle screws. Level of Evidence: III.

Conclusions: Our study provides Level III evidence that CCQ represents a promising alternative or a complementary method to the traditional Cobb angle due to its simple and reliable ability to measure the magnitude of the curve.

ConclusionsProximal fusion carries the risk of adding-on, but leaving unfused segments in the lower spine increases the potential for compensatory mechanisms to improve spinal and truncal balance. In mature patients with a flexible MT curve, surgeons may consider fusion at or cranial to the LTV.

AbstractPurposeTo evaluate the 3D deformity of the acetabula and lower limbs in subjects with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) and their relationship with spino-pelvic alignment.MethodsTwo hundred and seventy-four subjects with AIS (frontal Cobb: 33.5 ° ± 18° [10°–110°]) and 84 controls were enrolled. All subjects underwent full-body biplanar X-rays with subsequent 3D reconstructions. Classic spino-pelvic and lower limb parameters were collected as well as acetabular parameters: acetabular orientation in the 3 planes (tilt, anteversion and abduction), center–edge angle ...
