Surgical instrumentation planning for the correction of scoliosis involves many difficult decisions, especially with the introduction of multi-segmental and other instrumentation technologies. A preliminary study has shown a high variability in planning among a small group of surgeons. The purpose of this paper was to evaluate and analyze the selection of fusion levels and instrumentation choices among a more extended group of scoliosis surgeons. Thirty-two experienced spinal deformity surgeons… CONTINUE READING
