3D rod shape changes in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis instrumentation: how much does it impact correction?

Abstract

Flattening of rods is known to reduce the correction capability of the instrumentation, but has not been studied in 3D. The aim is to evaluate the rods shape 3D changes during and immediately after instrumentation, and its effect on 3D correction. The 5.5 mm CoCr rods of 35 right thoracic adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients were measured from rod… (More)
