From: Safety and efficacy of posterior vertebral column resection in complex pediatric deformities

  Preoperative Postoperative Test of Sig.
Immediate After 2 years
COBB (21 cases)
 Mean ± SD. 82.9 ± 23.9 28.8 ± 14.2 30.2 ± 14.9 Fr = 39.975*

KYPHOSIS (7cases)
 Mean ± SD. 74.1 ± 15.9 25.4 ± 4.5 26.7 ± 5.2 F = 118.964*
 Median (Min.–Max.) 66 (60–100) 23 (20–33) 25 (20–35)

  1. Correction rate and loss are bold because as they are the most important information in the table
  2. F: F test (ANOVA) with repeated measures, significance between periods was done using post hoc test (adjusted Bonferroni)
  3. Fr: Friedman test, Sig. bet. periods was done using post hoc test (Dunn's)
  4. p1: p value for comparing between preoperative and immediate postoperative period
  5. p2: p value for comparing between preoperative and 2-year postoperative period
  6. *Statistically significant at p ≤ 0.05
