Abstract

In the existing literature, studies on this subject are not always consistent; hence the results of the orthopaedic treatment in scoliosis are difficult to interpret. Actually, the main difficulty lies in the insufficiency of available data on the features of the treated cases of scoliosis: few or no clinical data recorded at the beginning of the treatment and over the whole follow-up period, especially with regard to the evaluation of hump deformity, the measurement of frontal and sagittal tilt angle, changes of ventilatory capacity, etc., bone age at the start and at the end of the treatment, and to the known extent of the scoliosis.
