—The identification and classification of the spine deformity play an important role when considering surgical planning for adolescent patients with idiopathic scoliosis. The subject of this article is the Lenke classification of scoliotic spines using Cobb angle measurements. The purpose is twofold: (1) design a rule-based diagram to assist clinicians in(More)
Surgical instrumentation for the Adolescent idio-pathic scoliosis (AIS) is a complex procedure involving many difficult decisions. Selection of the appropriate fusion level remains one of the most challenging decisions in scoliosis surgery. Currently, the Lenke classification model is generally followed in surgical planning. The purpose of our study is to(More)
PURPOSE Surgical instrumentation for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is a complex procedure where selection of the appropriate curve segment to fuse, i.e., fusion region, is a challenging decision in scoliosis surgery. Currently, the Lenke classification model is used for fusion region evaluation and surgical planning. Retrospective evaluation of(More)
