Table 1 Patterns of clinical triad findings in relation to the number of fused cervical segments from C1 to T1 in KFS patients

From: “Clinical triad” findings in pediatric Klippel-Feil patients

  Number of Fused Cervical Segments, mean (range, ±SD)  
  No Yes p-value
Short Neck n = 26, 3.3 (1–7, 1.7) n = 5, 4.0 (1–6, 1.9) 0.368
Low Posterior Hairline n = 26, 3.4 (1–7, 1.7) n = 5, 3.4 (1–5, 1.8) 0.891
Limited Cervical ROM n = 11, 2.5 (1–5, 1.6) n = 20, 3.9 (1–7, 1.6) 0.028 a
One CTFs n = 11, 2.5 (1–5, 1.6) n = 20, 3.9 (1–7, 1.6) 0.028 a
Two CTFs n = 26, 3.2 (1–7, 1.7) n = 5, 4.6 (2–6, 1.5) 0.056
Complete CTFs n = 28, 3.4 (1–7, 1.8) n = 3, 3.0 (1–4, 1.7) 0.659
  1. ROM: range of motion
  2. CTFs: clinical triad findings
  3. a denotes statistical significance
