The clinical status was evaluated by Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index which was calculated with the measurements of wall to tragus distance, lumbar flexion, cervical rotation, lumbar lateral flexion, and intermalleolar

Improvements in spinal mobility were evaluated using linear Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index (BASMI), which is a combined index comprising five assessments of spinal mobility in patients with AS including individual assessment of cervical rotation in degrees, lumbar flexion, lumbar side flexion, intermalleolar distance and tragus-to-wall distance in centimeters.
Of the individual components, lumbar side flexion, cervical rotation and intermalleolar distance appeared to drive change in overall BASMIln.
Measure the intermalleolar distance in the knock-kneed with the recurvatum corrected and the knees lightly pressed together to qauntitate knock-knees.
Intermalleolar distance for knock-knees and intercondylar distance for bowlegs may be useful when monitoring the findings.
22) The BASMI is a composite score based on five direct measurements of spinal mobility: lateral lumbar flexion, tragus-to-wall distance, lumbar flexion, intermalleolar
distance, and cervical rotation angle.
Measurement of spinal mobility based on lateral lumbar flexion, tragus-to-wall distance, lumbar flexion, intermalleolar
distance and cervical rotation angle is a key clinical assessment of AS to monitor disease progression.
Spinal mobility was assessed by the measurement of the tragus-wall distance (TWD), a modified Schober's test, lateral spinal flexion, intermalleolar
distance, and cervical rotation to evaluate the present status and progression of the disease with the Bath Ankylosing Spondylitis Metrology Index (BASMI).
Tragus-wall distance was 18 cm, lombar flexion 0 cm, cervical rotation 0 cm, lumber lateral flexion 5 cm, and intermalleolar
distance 20 cm.
