Flexible growing rods: polymer rods provide stability to -skeletally immature spines

  • Published 2014

Abstract

Introduction: Surgical treatments for early onset scoliosis typically require multiple operations and many complications. A more fl exible growing rod construct might result in a more fl exible spine with fewer complications. Polymer rods (polyetheretherketone, PEEK) are relatively fl exible in bending, and therefore might allow for greater range of motion… (More)
