BACKGROUND The main disadvantage of the surgical management of early onset scoliosis (EOS) using conventional growing rods is the need for iterative surgical procedures during childhood. The emergence of an innovative device using distraction-based magnetically controlled growing rods (MCGR) provides the opportunity to avoid such surgeries and therefore to improve the patient's quality of life. HYPOTHESIS Despite the high cost of MCGR and considering its potential impact in reducing hospital… CONTINUE READING
