Background: To investigate the relationship between sagittal alignment and coronal deformity in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) through analysis of the spinal imaging data.
Methods: Four hundred and fifty-four AIS patients who underwent anteroposterior and lateral radiography of the while spine were enrolled, and the spinal parameters of Cobb angle, cervical lordosis, C1-C2 angle, T1 slope, thoracic kyphosis, lumbar lordosis, sacral slope, pelvic tilt (PT), pelvic incidence (PI), cervical sagittal vertical axis (SVA), and spinal SVA were analyzed.
Results: The patients were divided into two groups according to the size of the Cobb angle: group A (Cobb angle ≤45°, n=414) and group B (Cobb angle >45°, n=40). Read More
