SILVA M., Héctor. SAGITAL ANGLES VIEW FROM LUMBOSACRAL SPINE A ADOLESCENTS SAMPLE FROM TEMUCO CITY, CHILE. Rev. chil. anat. [online]. 2001, vol.19, n.3, pp.271-277. ISSN 0716-9868.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-98682001000300007.

The spine problems are high prevalence in the world and cause physical disability. This public Health problem affects people when adult. The spine problems are multifactor and one of them is the growing lumbar lordosis, lumbosacral angles, and lordosis depth. The main goal in the present work was to know these variables in the adolescent, because there is little information about the adolescent morphology. We analyze fifty x ray pictures of the adolescent spine, between 13 and 17 years old, 24 male and 26 female of Temuco. The total of the case, 76% of them had angles lumbosacral between 30 and 49º, this represent a normally in relation to the other authors. In relation to the lordosis angle, the mean was between 43º and 95º, the mode 50º, mean 62.84, median 62º, and standard deviation was 10.74º. The other variable, the lordosis depth, the mean was 17.08 mm, the maximum and minimum were 9 and 24 mm, the standard deviation was 3.7 and the mode was 15. It is  very important to know the parameter of the adolescent column and alterations, to promote  prevention program.
