To analyze risk factors for an increase in proximal junctional angle (PJA) after posterior selective thoracolumbar/lumbar (TL/L) curve fusion in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). AIS patients that underwent selective posterior TL/L curve fusion with a minimum of 2-year follow-up were identified. Demographic and radiographic data were collected before surgery, at first erect after surgery and at final follow-up. Multiple linear regression analysis was performed to determine… CONTINUE READING
