Surgical aspects of spinal growth modulation in scoliosis correction.

Abstract

Spine growth modulation for scoliosis correction is a technique for slowing growth on the convex side of the curve and enhancing growth on the concave side by using the Heuter-Volkmann principle; this results in gradual deformity correction. The theoretic advantages include speedier recovery because of the minimally invasive approach used, as well as motion… (More)
