Abstract

Purpose Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is a tridimensional deformity characterized by coronal and sagittal profiles changes. We present a series of 62 patients affected by AIS and treated by thoracic Universal Clamps and transpedicular lumbar screws hybrid system. Methods Mean age was 13 years. Average pre-operative Cobb angle was 63° ± 12°. Patients were divided into two groups depending on the kyphosis angle: lower than 45° (51 patients, 82.3 %, mean 21° ± 3°) and higher than 45° (11 patients, 17.7 %, mean 62° ± 6°). Results The average percentage of coronal correction was 70 ± 3 % (mean post-operative Cobb angle 19° ± 4°, P
