Objective The objective of this study was to develop a curve progression model for patients with AIS receiving brace treatment by considering compliance measures and in-brace correction factors.
Objective To describe a refined classification algorithm, based on instructions provided during certification training, to unambiguously guide scoliosis curve type classification in a clinical trial.
A 4-year-old boy developed progressive neck pain and an expansile osteogenic lesion of C2; the diagnosis was an aneurysmal bone cyst. An image-guided biopsy with 3D CT planning was performed followed by Ethibloc injection into the aneurysmal bone cyst. Subsequent CT and MR images demonstrated embolization material in the vertebrobasilar system, and the… (More)
Objective To present two proposed methods for determining clinically significant effects and describe each by using the same example from the scoliosis literature where statistical significance was not obtained.
Objective To evaluate changes in compliance including both wear tightness and wear time during early brace treatment for AIS.
We have developed a list of 281 competencies deemed to be of importance in the training of orthopaedic surgeons. A stratified, randomised selection of non-university orthopaedic surgeons rated each individual item on a scale 1 to 4 of increasing importance. Summary statistics across all respondents were given. The mean scores and sds were computed.… (More)
