Anterior, posterior surgery can be equivalent for patients with right thoracic AIS

July 6, 2015

Researchers treated 42 consecutive patients with right thoracic adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) at a single institution by one of two surgeons. A total of 18 patients underwent an anterior approach and 24 underwent a posterior approach; all patients were followed up for more than 2 years. An independent surgeon analyzed the patients’ radiographic, clinical and self-reported outcomes from the Modified Scoliosis Research Society Outcome Instrument.
