Abstract

Recent studies in the adult scoliosis population have shown effects of spinopelvic parameters on HRQoL outcomes. In this retrospective cohort study of 75 EOS patients treated with growth-friendly surgery, spinopelvic parameters affected HRQoL (EOSQ-24). Pre-operative PI>60° increased the risk for poor pain outcomes, pre- and post-operative LL>60° increased the risk for poor satisfaction, post-operative PI-LL mismatch of O >20° and post-operative PJK increased the risk of Fatigue.
