Segmented lordotic angles to assess lumbosacral transitional vertebra on EOS
European spine journal
To test the vertical posterior vertebral angles (VPVA) of the most caudal lumbar segments measured on EOS to identify and classify the lumbosacral transitional vertebra (LSTV). We reviewed the EOS examinations of 906 patients to measure the VPVA at the most caudal lumbar segment (cVPVA) and at the immediately proximal segment (pVPVA), with dVPVA being the result of their difference. Mann-Whitney, Chi-square, and ROC curve statistics were used. 172/906 patients (19%) had LSTV (112 females, meandoi:10.1007/s00586-020-06565-7 pmid:32783082 fatcat:y4vixkib2zeh5dhezvrccdnn7m
