Previous studies sought to delineate, without success, a relationship between coronal deformity and clinical outcomes. However in the sagittal plane, Glassman et al. demonstrated that positive sagittal malalignment is predictive of poor clinical health status; their two studies revealed that symptom severity increased linearly with worsening positive sagittal malalignment and that restoring normal sagittal alignment improved clinical symptoms [7, 8].
