The factors contributing to reduced work capacity (disability) in adolescent idiopathic thoracic scoliosis are poorly understood. We performed a cross-sectional study using multivariate analysis to identify the individual and additive influence of spinal deformity, pulmonary impairment, and muscular function on work capacity in 79 subjects with idiopathic scoliosis (angle of scoliosis 45 +/- 18.5 degrees, SD). Work capacity was measured using an incremental cycle test, and the cardiorespiratory… CONTINUE READING
