Change in lung volume after thoracoscopic anterior spinal fusion surgery for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis: A three dimensional computed tomography study
Yu, Caroline G., Grant, Caroline A., Izatt, Maree T., Adam, Clayton J., & Little, J. Paige (2016) Change in lung volume after thoracoscopic anterior spinal fusion surgery for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis: A three dimensional computed tomography study. In Australasian Students Surgical Conference 2016, April 29 - May 1, 2016, Brisbane, Qld. (Unpublished)
Retrospective analysis of volumetric lung reconstructions from low dose CT scans of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) patients treated with thoracoscopic anterior spinal fusion (TASF). Scans were analysed to determine the change in lung volume after surgical correction. Deformity correction surgery resulted in an improvement in the symmetry of the thoracic architecture in addition to postural balance and trunk appearance. Furthermore, change in lung volume was significantly correlated with changes in Cobb angle, hemithoracic asymmetry, and increased patient height, which are major consequences of deformity correction surgery.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
Full-text downloads displays the total number of times this work’s files (e.g., a PDF) have been downloaded from QUT ePrints as well as the number of downloads in the previous 365 days. The count includes downloads for all files if a work has more than one.
