BACKGROUND Age at menarche is considered a reliable prognostic factor for idiopathic scoliosis and varies in different geographic latitudes. Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis prevalence has also been reported to be different in various latitudes and demonstrates higher values in northern countries. A study on epidemiological reports from the literature was(More)
The scoliometer readings in both standing and sitting position of 2071 children and adolescents (1099 boys and 972 girls) aged from 5 to 18 years old were studied. The angle of trunk rotation (ATR) was measured, in order to quantify the existing trunk asymmetry. Children and adolescents were divided in two groups according to the severity of trunk(More)
The aim of this report is the appraisal of a possible correlation of trunk asymmetry assessed with a scoliometer and lateralization of the brain as expressed by handedness in a school aged population. Many (8245) students (4173 girls and 4072 boys), 6-18 years of age were examined. A checklist was completed for each student including handedness and trunk(More)
