1 Review
This volume represents the proceedings of the third biannual meeting of the International Research Society of Spinal Deformities (IRSSD). The number of oral presentations covering every aspect related to spinal deformities given by international scientists proves the high quality of research on the issue under study. In the presented reports, the spinal deformity has been meticulously analysed from biological physiological and biomechanical points of view with the target of establishing improved methods for diagnosis and prognosis and of achieving optimal methods for conservative and operative treatment of the patient. The publication of these proceedings in the form of a "book" is not only useful for didactic and reference purposes, but also for the introduction and promotion of large-scale programme results and far-reaching new ideas.
