Figure 4 Short-segment fixation. A 63-year-old female patient. (A, B) X-ray films of the whole spine in standard standing position before operation: Cobb’s: 30.13°, SVA: 10.06mm, TK: 12.36°, LL: 28.57°, PI: 44.45°, PT: 21.43°, SS: 24.14°; (C, D) The X-ray film of left and right bending position before operation; (E) Preoperative transaxial plane of MRI showed spinal stenosis; (F) Preoperative transaxial plane of CT scans showed hyperosteogeny at the edge of vertebral body; (G) Sagittal MRI shows disc herniation with dural sac compression; (H, I) One year after operation, X-ray films of the whole spine in standard standing position: Cobb’s: 10.41°, SVA: 34.34mm, TK: 24.53°, TLK: 13.79°, LL: 28.28°, PI: 45.42°, PT: 17.68°, SS: 27.43°.
