Özet

Objective: Instrumentation and correction of severe congenital scoliosis, particularly in patients with spinal dysraphism, has been reported to cause a high potential rate of neurological compromise after instrumentation. The aim of this study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of posterior instrumentation and correction of congenital scoliosis with accompanying spinal dysraphism.
