MINI: In this retrospective radiographic analysis of cervical sagittal alignment in 151 patients, age was positively correlated with C2-C7 Cobb angle, upper C7 slope, lower C7 slope, and T1 slope. Age-related changes in cervical sagittal alignment were characterized by increased cervical lordosis and increased thoracic kyphosis.
