    Background: Scoliosis is one of the most common spinal deformities with subsequent decrease in pulmonary function. The effects of surgical correction on the pulmonary function of patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis are controversial. The purpose of the present study was to compare the...

    In this review, basic knowledge and recent innovation of surgical treatment for scoliosis will be described. Surgical treatment for scoliosis is indicated, in general, for the curve exceeding 45 or 50 degrees by the Cobb's method on the ground that: 1) Curves larger than 50 degrees progress even...

    It is generally believed that minimal access surgery may produce less change in pulmonary function than conventional open thoracotomy for scoliosis correction. Though there is considerable literature regarding changes in pulmonary function tests (PFT) after thoracotomy, there is scant data...
