scoliosis and spondylolisthesis

Can I know whether there is any relation between spondylolisthesis and scoliosis???

    listhesis is the slippage of one vertebrae off another -retrolisthesis is backwards, anterolisthesis is forward.  usually the forward slippage is associated with pars fractures at the level that is sliding forward.  there is also lateral listhesis where a vertebrae can fall sideways off another-i had this, my L2 was falling sideways off L3, but there has to be some serious deterioration of the facet joints coupled with scoliosis to make this happen as i understand it in my situation.  i had both, severe facet degeneration, lateral scoliosis, and also pars fractures......
    i honestly couldn't tell you if listhesis and scoli are related in any way shape or form.....but i do know that i had both!
