Core Tip The systematic review with meta-analysis was performed for combining the published data on the predictors of progressive adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). Comprehensive literature search revealed 1391 citations, 25 of which were selected. All studies showed statistically significant or borderline association between severity or progression of AIS with the different characteristics such as: clinical, radiographic, physiologic, biochemical, genetic, and combinatorial. However, predictive values of all these findings were limited, and the levels of evidence were low. Current study did not reveal any methods for the prediction of progression in AIS that could be recommended for clinical use as diagnostic criteria.
