Table 2 Cobb angle of subjects

From: Scoliosis in Duchenne muscular dystrophy children is fully reducible in the initial stage, and becomes structural over time

  1. aSubjects are recruited from the 31 patients who have developed scoliosis during the follow up period
  2. Values are presented as mean ± standard deviation
  3. Time 1 represents the time when scoliosis was first detected after loss of walking ability
  4. Time 2 represents the time 1 year after the detection of scoliosis
  5. Time 3 represents the time 2 years after the detection of scoliosis
