Effect of posterior surgery on pre- and post-operative sports activity in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis

Abstract

Materials and method Among the patients with AIS who underwent surgery in our institution, 15 patients were analyzed. Minimum follow up period post-surgery was 2 years. Patients were all females with an average follow-up of 38 months. The mean patient age at surgery was 14.2±1.5 mean Cobb angle of the major curve preoperatively was 54.3±7.4 and 21.8±6.9 degrees postoperatively. We evaluated the strength, speed and agility of these patients preand postoperatively using the government-prescribed Physical Fitness Test.
