BACKGROUND CONTEXT As the biomechanical foundation of the spine, the pelvis was found to display rotation in the transverse plane in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). However, the possible factors influencing the pelvic axial rotation (PAR) and its mechanism in patients with AIS remain unclear. PURPOSE To characterize the PAR in AIS patients with… CONTINUE READING
