36

What does direction of scoliosis refer to?

The side the convexity of the curve will bend toward

37

Over 10 years odl

42

Identify the curve direction, location, gender bias, and incidence of infantile idiopathic scoliosis.

Left thoracic, male, less than 1% incidence

43

Identify the curve direction , location, gender bias, and incidence of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.

Right thoracic or right thoracic and left lumbar, females, 80% incidence

44

What is the relationship between curve deviation, incidence, and curve worsening?
