VEPTR Implantation After Age 3 is Associated With Similar Radiographic Outcomes With Fewer Complications.


BACKGROUND The purpose of this study was to analyze the risks and benefits of early vertical expandable prosthetic titanium rib (VEPTR) implantation (below 3 y of age) compared with delayed intervention (3 to 6 y of age). Early intervention with milder deformity may make device implantation easier and may facilitate symmetric chest and pulmonary development… (More)
