STUDY DESIGN A retrospective study of 61 patients with cerebral palsy (CP) and neuromuscular scoliosis treated by either a combined anterior-posterior spinal arthrodesis or a posterior-only arthrodesis with the unit rod. OBJECTIVES Compare coronal and sagittal plane radiographic outcomes in patients undergoing either a combined anterior-posterior spinal fusion (PSF) or a posterior-only fusion with the unit rod for neuromuscular scoliosis in patients with CP.
