Introduction: Thoracolumbar/lumbar kyphosis in myelomeningocele patients is a common and severely debilitating condition, amenable only to surgical correction. Several surgical techniques have been proposed. Growth-friendly techniques should be preferred in this patient population due to an already compromised trunk height. The growing rod (GR) and Luque trolley (LT) with Galveston instrumentation are well-known growth-friendly techniques. We compared results and complications in 2 groups of patients who have undergone kyphectomy and fixation, either with the GR (group 1) or the LT with Galveston pelvic fixation (group 2).
