Comparison of Cobb angles among each curve pattern. In single curve patterns, BA was almost the same as HA. In multiple curve patterns, BA of major curves was almost the same as HA of them, except thoracolumbar and lumbar curves in double major curve pattern, proximal thoracic curve in double thoracic curve pattern, and proximal and main thoracic curves in triple major curve pattern. (BA: Cobb angle on initial brace wearing, HA: Cobb angle in hanging position).
