STUDY DESIGN Retrospective review with historical cohort. OBJECTIVE Our study measures axial rotation of the apical vertebral bodies of patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis treated with an all pedicle screw (APS) construct versus a hook-rod (HR) construct using computed tomography (CT). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Ecker et al (Spine 1988;13:1141-4) observed a 22% derotation of the apical vertebrate of the thoracic spine and 33% of the apical vertebra of the lumbar spine when using… CONTINUE READING
