BACKGROUND CONTEXT The main advantage cited for the use of the magnetic controlled growing rod (MCGR) system over the conventional growing rod (CGR) in early-onset scoliosis is avoiding repeated invasive surgical procedures for lengthening, thus reducing, complications. PURPOSE The study aimed to evaluate the complications of the MCGR system against the CGR system in our center. STUDY DESIGN/SETTING This is a retrospective case control series. PATIENT SAMPLE The sample includes patients… CONTINUE READING
