    Na, I felt childish after I'd posted it. The issue is important, what is relevant and what is not.

    The 2011 European Spine Journal paper you posted claims AIS =/= SS in etiology. They claim they are different. That comports with what little I know about this.

    (emphasis added)

    The objective of this study was to elucidate the possible role of rib asymmetry in the pathogenesis of AIS by comparing the convex–concave rib length discrepancy between two groups of scoliotic patients with different etiology but with similar curve pattern and curve magnitude.
    Here's a site that separates SS from IS but there are other web sites that don't separate them... syringomyelia is classed under neuromuscular...
