The Bone & Joint Journal, 04/26/2012
Tsirikos AI et al. – The scoliosis progressed in seven of nine children initially treated with a brace who later required surgery. Two patients presented after skeletal maturity with balanced curves not requiring correction. Three patients with severe deformities who would benefit from corrective surgery had significant cardiac co–morbidities.
