The AIS study found approach (anterior/combined), number of pedicle screws, and number of vertebral levels fused to be significant predictors of increased cost, whereas the current study found degree of major and minor structural curves, total number of anterior/posterior
levels fused, and length of hospital stay to predict increased cost.
, medial/lateral, polar/non-polar) and tumour association with other structures (e.
Extension phase: The average magnitude of the tibial anterior/posterior
translation for the ACLD and contralateral knees were 4.
If the cause of lumbar hyperlordosis is an imbalance of tensile forces of anterior/posterior
pelvic tilt soft tissues, then it follows that effective and lasting treatment must be directed toward these tissues.
Then, for each of the five designs, we created mathematical models, which involved deriving a system of equations developed from force body diagrams, and solving for the anterior/posterior
and compressive/distractive forces at the knee joint as a function of flexion.
All patients underwent anterior thoracoscopic release and fusion as part of an anterior/posterior
spinal fusion for idiopathic scoliosis.
Planar images that include anterior converging and lateral pinhole images over the thyroid provide lateralization as well as anterior/posterior
Many earlier studies of vertebral fractures have used the same definition for all vertebrae and this will overestimate the prevalence of vertebral fractures because the normal anterior/posterior
height ratio in the mid-thoracic vertebrae is about 0.
The mean preand post-season anterior/posterior
SI was high suggesting poor static balance in this plane but the medial/lateral SI indicated acceptable static balance.
The proximal stump sutures were then placed into the insertion of the patellar tendon on the tibial tuberosity and tied under tension, creating an anterior/posterior
overlapping of the proximal and distal stumps, respectively.
