STUDY DESIGN: An analysis of the variation in glycosaminoglycan, water content, and cell density with disc level in patients with neuromuscular scoliosis. OBJECTIVES: To determine whether the composition of the apical disc differed from that of adjacent discs in the same spine. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Compositional differences between the convex and concave sides of scoliotic discs have been noted and are thought to be secondary to altered loading. However, there is little information on ...Expand abstract
