BACKGROUND The positioning of patients during scoliosis surgery has been shown to affect the scoliosis curve, yet positioning has not been exploited to help improve surgical outcome from a biomechanics point of view. Biomechanical models have been used to study other aspects of scoliosis. The goal of this study is to simulate the specific influence of the prone operative position and anaesthesia using a finite element model with patient personalized material properties. METHODS A finite… CONTINUE READING
