  1. Determinants of trunk abnormalities in adolescence.

    Article - En anglais


    The relationship between gender, anthropometric factors, adolescent growth, maturation and incidence of trunk abnormalities was studied in 2819 children who were symmetric at baseline examination.


    At age 11 years and at age 13 years, data on height, weight, onset of adolescent growth spurt, pubertal phase and menarche were collected and examination for trunk abnormalities was performed.

    Data analysis included calculation of 2-year cumulative incidence and relative risks (RR) of trunk abnormalities.


    Two-year cumulative incidence was 11%. The RR for boys was 0.78 (95% confidence interval (Cl) : 0.63-0.96) compared to girls.

    Height was the strongest predictor for the development of trunk abnormalities in both sexes.
