Bracing found to be an effective treatment for Idiopathic Scoliosis

The results of the Bracing in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis Trial ( BrAiST) were reported by Dr Stuart Weinstein at the annual meeting of the Scoliosis Research Society In Lyon, France. Simultaneously, the results were published on line in the New England Journal of Medicine, a high impact journal for medical research (Effect of Bracing in Adolescents with Idiopathic Scoliosis. Weinstein SL, Dolan LA, Wright JG et.al NEJM.org). Dr Weinstein reported that bracing of adolescents with moderate scoliosis was effective treatment in the reduction of the number of patients who advance to the need for surgery. In addition, a positive  dose response effect was found between the number of hours of brace wear with the success rate of bracing.

With this communication I would like to update you about the recent activity in our journal.

A) As you probably noticed we published the SRS article:

Screening for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis: an information statement by the scoliosis research society international task force

Labelle H, Richards SB, De Kleuver M, Grivas TB, Luk KDK, Wong HK, Thometz J, Beauséjour M et al.

Scoliosis 2013, 8:17 (31 October 2013)

This was succeeded, first of all, due to the harmonious collaboration of SOSORT and SRS, and secondary due to journal’s EiC intense efforts to convince the group of co-authors who had diverse ideas for the target journal (Initially this was submitted to Lancet, but the publication would have taken ages to be published. Spine Deformity and JBJS–A were also different options put on the table as a target journals for publication). The article was finally published in our journal! The high visibility of this article can be checked

B) In the SRS website the Manual of Brace Treatment for Idiopathic Scoliosis


includes the European Braces (there is a link to the URL of Scoliosis Journal Brace technology thematic series).

This is one additional important SOSORT achievement!

However the Annotated Bibliography in this section of the SRS website needs updating and inclusion of the literature published in “Scoliosis” and other non-USA journals.

We have to work on this systematically and continuously as we have done for the above succeeded goals.
