These deformities may be solely scoliotic
or include kyphotic components.
In the present study we noticed a significantly reduced VC, expiratory reserve volume (ERV), inspiratory reserve volume (IRV), tidal volume (TV) and inspiratory capacity (IC) in scoliotics
(p < 0.001) as shown in table number 2.
Within the period from 2003 to 2009, the 28 patients with scoliotic
deformations of a backbone were operated using two staged reconstructive and corrective bone surgery methods.
Delay in the developmental program could lead to malformed embryos (e.g., scoliotic

These case reports detail the presentation of a pair of fraternal juvenile twins with dissimilar scoliotic
curve characteristics in a private chiropractic practice.

Surgical techniques for the treatment of scoliotic
deformity have continued to evolve.
For example, a very scoliotic
patient should be positioned with the midline off center to accommodate the appropriate amount of soft tissue on either side of the spine.

Instrumented thoracolumbar fusion for adolescent and adult spinal deformity has enjoyed great success in arresting the progression of and correcting scoliotic
