[…] All data were expressed as mean ± standard deviation and analyzed by the SPSS 16.0 software (SPSS Inc., Chicago, IL). Differences in demographic, radiological and pulmonary function parameters between 2 groups were compared by Student's t test. Multiple linear regression analysis was performed to explore whether the demographic, radiological and brace treatment variables influenced pulmonary function (FVC% and FEV1%) in the brace treatment group. A 2-tailed P value < 0.05 was considered to be statistically significant. Post-hoc power analysis was calculated by the software named G∗Power (version 3.1, Franz Paul, Kiel University, Kiel, Germany) to estimate the probability of detecting a statistically significant difference between groups when an actual difference does exists (that is, 1 - Type II error β). Power > 0.8 was considered as the presence of a significant difference indeed. […]
