1 A statistic approach to electronic moulding versus traditional plaster moulding Jean Claude de Mauroy, Frédéric Barral, Cyril Lecante

2 Background  Electronic moulding tends to gradually replace the plaster moulding. Is it as effective?  There is no study on the results obtained by this process for the scoliosis.  In the department of orthopaedic medicine of the Clinique du Parc - Lyon, the electronic moulding replaced the traditional plastered moulding in May,  Are the radiological angular corrections better in brace?

8 Methodology  The angular correction of 166 plaster moulding scoliosis was compared with the correction of 117 electronic moulding scoliosis (random).  Both mouldings were made by the same physician.  The electronic moulding has been produced using the full 3D system ORTEN.  The curves have been grouped into thoracic (n=127), thoracolumbar(n=65) and lumbar(n=206).

9 Init Plaster cast Lumbar brace

10 Results The average initial angle is: 28,19 (+-9,21) for thoracic, 28,11 (+-9,34) for thoraco-lumbar and 25,86 (+-7,04) for lumbar curves. The angular reducibility is 54 % in braces for the thoracic curvatures, 69 % for the thoraco- lumbar curvatures and of 73 % for the lumbar curvatures, which corresponds to the usual results of the Lyon management.

15 Conclusion  Such results are in favour of the electronic moulding which remains however delicate and require:  a precise position of the patient during the surface topography and  well trained orthotic technicians.
