Principles of Posterior Surgery in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
This is a typical case of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) who has had a trial of conservative treatment with a rigid brace that was not necessarily indicated before surgery. Based on her case;
Surgical indications in AIS,
Use and application of Lenke classification in surgical decision making,
Uses, advantages and disadvantages of surgical correction maneuvers, and
Priorities in surgical treatment of AIS will be discussed.
