Significant increases in postoperative coronal curvature are typically attributed to the presence of pseudarthrosis, loss of instrumentation fixation, or adding-on. We evaluated the clinical and radiographic factors associated with a loss of correction that was not attributed to these etiologies as well as the impact of pedicle screw fixation on loss… CONTINUE READING
