Abstract
Attempts have been made to examine and evaluate the preoperative and postoperative pulmonary functions of 25 idiopathic cases of scoliosis who were oparated by utilizing Harington rods and whose late follow-ups were made in the Department of Orthopaedics in the Medical School of the İstanbul University. Furthermore, results have been compared and a discussion has been carried out about the effects of surgical treatment with Harrington rods on pulmonary functions.
