STUDY DESIGN A review article. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this article is to review pertinent radiologic measurements for the evaluation of spino-pelvic balance in developmental spondylolisthesis, based on the experience of the Spinal Deformity Study Group. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Over the past decade, pelvic morphology has been shown to significantly influence spino-pelvic balance of the human trunk in normal and pathologic conditions. This finding has important implications for the… CONTINUE READING
