H3S2 (3 hooks, 2 screws) construct: a simple growing rod technique for early onset scoliosis
European Spine Journal, 06/04/2012
Miladi L et al. – Preliminary results from these series of patients show that the presented fusionless single growing rod technique allows to maintain correction of progressive early onset scoliosis while permitting spinal growth, with low complication rate. With this technique, lengthening procedures are used only once in every 10 months and patients are more comfortable as no brace is needed in most cases. This technique does not require any specific spine device. The procedure is simple and efficacious as long as some guidelines are respected.
