Abstract

Adult spinal deformity is a complex pathologic process that has many etiologies and several mechanisms of compensation. A complete understanding of spinopelvic alignment is required to differentiate the origin of spinal deformity from its compensation and, ultimately, optimize surgical correction. Surgeons should understand the spinopelvic parameters involved in the evaluation of a patient who has an adult spinal deformity and their implications for treatment.
