Magnetically controlled growing rod systems have been introduced over recent years as an alternative to traditional growing rods for management of early onset scoliosis. The purpose of this paper is to report our early experience of a magnetically controlled growing rod system (MAGEC, Ellipse). Review of pre-operative, postoperative and follow-up Cobb angles and spinal growth in case series of eight patients with a minimum 23 months’ follow-up (23–36 months). A total of six patients had dual… CONTINUE READING
