Cardiorespiratory function in surgically treated thoracic scoliosis with respect to degree and apex of scoliotic curve.

Abstract

We studied the relationship of deterioration of cardiorespiratory function with respect to degree and localisation of apex of spinal curvature. The study comprised 33 patients (27 females and 6 males) aged 15 (11-21) years, surgically treated for an average scoliotic angle of 72 degrees (55-129 degrees, after Cobb) which was postoperatively reduced to 32.6… (More)
