Abstract At present, we survey 52 patients who had been fitted with Chêneau braces in the years 1978 to 1980. The average primary correction of the single curved thoracic, single curved lumbar, and double curved scolioses amounted to 41\%. The best late results are to be expected in the single curved thoracic and single curved lumbar scolioses that presented corrections of 14.2\% and 9.2\%. In the double curved scoliosis we found a correction of 5.5\% of the thoracic and 5.6\% of the lumbar curves. The Chêneau orthosis was well accepted by the patients. A final valuation, however, will not be possible till some years have passed. This article was published in Z Orthop Ihre Grenzgeb and referenced in Orthopedic & Muscular System: Current Research
