UNLABELLED The purpose of this study was to correlate measures of sagittal spinopelvic alignment [lumbar lordosis (LL), sacral slope (SS), pelvic tilt (PT) and pelvic incidence (PI)] and measures of acetabular coverage [lateral center edge angle (LCEA) and Tonnis angle] in asymptomatic adolescents on standing biplanar radiographs. We hypothesized that(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to analyze the variation in measuring the lateral center edge angle of Wiberg (LCEA) using the lateral edge of the sourcil (LCEA-S) compared to the lateral edge of the acetabulum (LCEA-E), and to correlate these measurements with three-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT)-based analysis of the femoroacetabular(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective chart and radiographic review. PURPOSE To assess the incidence of and variables associated with spinal deformity progression after posterior segmental instrumentation and fusion at a single institution. Progression of the scoliotic deformity after posterior instrumented spinal fusion has been described. Recent studies have(More)
STUDY DESIGN In vitro biomechanical investigation of lumbosacropelvic spinal instrumentation. OBJECTIVE Determine whether unilateral iliac fixation, with or without an L6 to S1 interbody graft, provides equivalent biomechanical stability compared with bilateral iliac fixation. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Recent clinical evidence has shown improved(More)
