CT and radiographic analysis of sagittal profile changes following thoracoscopic anterior scoliosis surgery

Abstract

BACKGROUND Previous studies report an increase in thoracic kyphosis after anterior approaches and a flattening of sagittal contours following posterior approaches. Difficulties with measuring sagittal parameters on radiographs are avoided with reformatted sagittal CT reconstructions due to the superior endplate clarity afforded by this imaging modality… (More)
