This study examined the hypothesis that a small adult vertebral canal is a marker of early impairment of growth, and that other sensitive systems may be impaired similarly, producing an adult relationship among a small canal, poor health, and academic ability.
Comparisons of health and some espects of academic ability were made between patients whose canals were above and those below the mean at L5.
Seventy-five patients were examined, 42 men and 33 women.
