Patient-specific finite element analysis of single rod adolescent idiopathic scoliosis surgery

Adam, Clayton J., Pearcy, Mark J., & Askin, Geoffrey N. (2004) Patient-specific finite element analysis of single rod adolescent idiopathic scoliosis surgery. In First Asian-Pacific Conference on Biomechanics, 25-28 March 2004, Osaka, Japan.


This paper presents a methodology for development of patient-specific finite element methods to predict the biomechanical outcomes of scoliosis surgery pre-operatively, with the aim of optimising the performance of instrumentation constructs for anterior single rod AIS surgery. The patient-specific finite element approach is an emerging technology still under development, but has potential to predict surgical correction, compliance of the surgically altered spine, and internal stress/strain in both the osseoligamentous spine and the rod/screw instrumentation system.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
