Computer tomography (CT) presents a method of determining longitudinal axis vertebral rotation and vertebral, spinal, and rib case deformity. Different rotation angles, distances, and indexes are defined and discussed. Radiation risks were evaluated and considered exceedingly small when compared to the ordinary spinal anteroposterior radiograph. In a model(More)
The spinal mobility and sagittal configuration in 96 scoliotic patients treated according to Harrington were investigated with a Debrunner kyphometer and a Myrin inclinometer. The more distal the fusion limit in the lumbar spine, the more reduced was the lumbar lordosis and flexion. The patients' own estimation of lumbar rigidity and pain, scored on visual(More)
The aim of this study is to see how the spinal sagittal configuration and mobility in 127 patients with idiopathic scoliosis are influenced by increasing scoliotic deformity and to determine when this deformity gets clinically significant compared to controls (n = 92). In patients with thoracic curves the degrees of thoracic kyphosis and lumbar lordosis(More)
