WCR out-of-brace correction from 41 degrees to 14 degrees Cobb angle. a: The clinical presentation of the patient with a right thoracic curve of 41 degrees Cobb angle. b: In-brace X-ray of patient with Cheneau type brace 18 hours after initial fitting. The right thoracic curve reduced in-brace from 41 degrees to 5 degrees Cobb angle and the upper thoracic curve reduced in-brace from approximately 25 degrees Cobb angle to 10 degrees Cobb angle. c: Out-of-brace X-ray showed a reduction in the major curve from 41 degrees prebrace to 14 degrees out-of-brace.
