Discrepancy between radiographic shoulder balance and cosmetic shoulder balance in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients with double thoracic curve
Shoulder balance is one of the key components to the body deformity in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients with double thoracic curve and shoulder cosmesis plays an important role in… Expand
Increased expression of insulin‐like growth factor‐1 receptor is correlated with tumor metastasis and prognosis in patients with osteosarcoma
The aim of this study was to investigate the association of insulin‐like growth factor‐1 receptor (IGF‐1R) with metastasis and prognosis of osteosarcoma patients.
Pedicle subtraction osteotomy through pseudarthrosis to correct thoracolumbar kyphotic deformity in advanced ankylosing spondylitis
IntroductionSurgical treatment is mandatory for spinal pseudarthrosis in advanced ankylosing spondylitis (AS) patients with painful sagittal deformity and/or neurological deficits. However, the most… Expand
Sagittal Alignment of Spine and Pelvis in Asymptomatic Adults: Norms in Chinese Populations
Study Design. A prospective, cross-sectional study. Objective. To investigate the normal values of sagittal spinal and pelvic parameters in Chinese populations and to determine the influence of age,… Expand
Genome-wide association study identifies new susceptibility loci for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis in Chinese girls
Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is a structural deformity of the spine affecting millions of children. As a complex disease, the genetic aetiology of AIS remains obscure. Here we report the… Expand

OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to prospectively compare the radiographic and clinical outcomes between the posterior fossa decompression (PFD) and PFD with duraplasty (PFDD) procedures in… Expand
Initial Correction Rate Can be Predictive of the Outcome of Brace Treatment in Patients With Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
Study Design: A retrospective study. Objective: To determine the definite cut-off value of initial correction rate (ICR) that could be predictive of bracing outcome in patients with adolescent… Expand
Radiographical Predictors for Postoperative Sagittal Imbalance in Patients With Thoracolumbar Kyphosis Secondary to Ankylosing Spondylitis After Lumbar Pedicle Subtraction Osteotomy
Study Design. A retrospective radiographical study. Objective. To identify the radiographical predictors for sagittal imbalance in patients with thoracolumbar kyphosis secondary to ankylosing… Expand
Does brace treatment impact upon the flexibility and the correctability of idiopathic scoliosis in adolescents?
PurposeBrace treatment has served as a vital non-surgical procedure for immature adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients with a mild or moderate curve. For the patients who fail in bracing and… Expand
Association Between Genetic Determinants of Peak Height Velocity During Puberty and Predisposition to Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
