Electron micro probe analysis of muscles from patients with scoliosis


, : Electron micro probe analysis of muscles from patients with scoliosis. Micron 11(2): 147-152

Paraspinal and gluteal muscles from patients with scoliosis were examined by electron-probe X-ray microanalysis in an EM (EMMA). P, Ca, S and Zn were detected, the localized concentrations being especially high in nuclei. A degree of correlation was found between various elemental ratios and pathological changes. The muscles on the concave side of the spinal curvature appeared to be most severely deranged.
