In patients with spinal deformity, the stature is generally reduced and so height becomes an unreliable measurement to predict the vital capacity (VC). Hence this study has been undertaken to show that an alternative physical measurement of arm span may be utilized to predict the lung volumes in these subjects as there is a highly significant positive correlation between height, arm span and lung volumes. An attempt has been made to see the relationship between arm length and lung volume also.
