BACKGROUND CONTEXT Growing rod constructs are an important contribution for treating patients with early-onset scoliosis. These devices experience high failure rates, including rod fractures. PURPOSE The objective of this study was to identify the failure mechanism of retrieved growing rods, and to identify differences between patients with failed and intact constructs. STUDY DESIGN/SETTING Growing rod patients who had implant removal and were previously enrolled in a multicenter registry… CONTINUE READING
