Abstract

A rare case of treatment and determine the Lenke type 5C adolescent idiopathic scoliosis in terms of Cobb angle correction and coronal balance after selective posterior segmental spinal instrumentation with pedicle screws. This retrospective cohort study was conducted in Department of Orthopedic and Spine Surgery. Selective spinal fusion with pedicle screws for Lenke type 5C adolescent idiopathic scoliosis were reviewed. Preoperative radiographs were evaluated for Cobb angle of lumbar or thoracolumbar curve as well as sagittal and lumbar modifier on anteroposterior and lateral standing films. The curve correction, implant density, number of segments fused, and coronal balance was assessed on post operative radiographs.
