# of pages516
The extended essays of the papers and posters presented at meeting of the International Research Society of Spinal Deformities (IRSSD) are contained within this book. The meeting comprised of 17 Scientific Sessions on Spinal Deformities, these included: Aetiology, Incidence, Natural History and Prognosis, Genetics and Growth, Anatomy, Pathology and Basic Science, Assessment, Biomechanics, Gait, Surface Topography, Imaging, Morphological Aspects (3-D) of Spinal Deformity, Technology, Cervical Spine, Spondylolisthesis - Low Back Pain, Conservative Treatment – (Physiotherapy – Brace), Surgical Treatment and Outcome.
Particular emphasis was given to the scientific programme in order to have a well-balanced amount of research and clinical papers on Spinal Deformities. The scope of this policy was to wide spread the latest trends of research in spinal deformities to the clinical environment, but also for researchers, to have the analogous input from the problems of the recent clinical practice, so that the consequent interaction could be productive in a collegial, international atmosphere.
