Abstract

The value of surface topographical measurements In the assessment of curve progression in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is demonstrated in a group of 51 patients. Cobb angles at the commencement of the study ranged from 10° -55° (mean 34.5°), and the mean follow-up period was greater than 2 years. The surface shape method correctly identified curve evolution in 84% of the patient group. Of these, the eight patients who underwent spinal instrumentation were correctly predicted as candidates for surgery.
