Abstract


Purpose. To develop a visual-and-analogue test in order to evaluate the functional state of a patient with the spine deformity in childhood and adolescence.
Material and methods. We tested thirty five patients with diagnosed idiopathic scoliosis of the spine at the mean age of 16.1±3.4 years. There were six
males and twenty nine females among the patients. We used paired and non-paired Wilcoxon test and Student t-test for statistical processing of the data.
Results. As determined, the use of this test allows evaluating the functional state in children at the age of nine years with idiopathic scoliosis, as well as in
adolescents with the same condition.
Conclusion. The quantitative self-rating of the functional state in children and adolescents in the early and long-term
postoperative period by the three components: pain, activity and self-image makes it possible to objectify the dynamics of sings and to identify the degree
of changes at the patient’s psychophysiological level.
