Table 3 Pelvic obliquity of subjects

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

  Time 1 Time 2 Time 3

  1. Values are presented as mean ± standard deviation
  2. Time 1 represents the time when scoliosis was first detected after loss of walking ability
  3. Time 2 represents the time 1 year after the detection of scoliosis
  4. Time 3 represents the time 2 years after the detection of scoliosis
