STUDY DESIGN A prospective, cross-sectional study. OBJECTIVE To determine the independent variables associated with lumbar lordosis (LL) and to establish the predictive formula of ideal LL in Chinese population. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Several formulas have been established in Caucasians to estimate the ideal LL to be restored for lumbar fusion surgery. However, there is still a lack of knowledge concerning the establishment of such predictive formula in Chinese population. METHODS A… CONTINUE READING
