Sequentially quantifying progressive anterior overgrowth in the vertebrae of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients

Newell, Nicolas, Grant, Caroline A., Keenan, Bethany E., Izatt, Maree T., Pearcy, Mark J., & Adam, Clayton J. (2016) Sequentially quantifying progressive anterior overgrowth in the vertebrae of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients. In Spineweek 2016, 16 -20 May 2016, Singapore. (Unpublished)


The theory of anterior overgrowth had been proposed as a possible driver for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) progression in which the anterior column grows faster, and the posterior column slower in comparison to healthy controls. Some studies have suggested that anterior vertebral body heights are proportionally greater than posterior vertebral body heights in AIS patients when compared to healthy controls, but results from other studies have not supported this theory. These discrepancies, may, to some extent be attributed to methodological differences. The aim of the current study was to measure changes in vertebral body height during scoliosis progression and growth.

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.
