Table 7 Prevalence of joint hypermobility (JHM) in subjects with apical vertebra axial rotation (AVR) quantified according to Cobb method as: AVR +, AVR ++ or AVR +++

From: Joint hypermobility in children with idiopathic scoliosis: SOSORT award 2011 winner

  AVR +
n = 30 (100.0%)
AVR ++
n = 22 (100.0%)
AVR +++
n = 18 (100.0%)
JHM present - n (%) 14 (46.7) 12 (54.5) 8 (44.4)
JHM absent - n (%) 16 (53.3) 10 (45.5) 10 (55.6)
