Asymmetrical development of vertebral arches as an x-ray sign of progressing idiopathic scoliosis in children

Кобызев А.Е.

Abstract


The spine deformity progress in children is directly related to their continued growth. The lack of full etiology understanding doesn’t allow predicting the course of scoliosis. The revealed asymmetry of vertebral arches being within the deformity arc appears to be the first sign of scoliosis development in children. The relationship has been revealed between the degree of arch asymmetry and the course of idiopathic scoliosis in children with incomplete growth.
