Magnetically controlled growing rods for severe spinal curvature in young children: a prospective case series
The Lancet, 05/31/2012
Cheung KMC et al. – The magnetically controlled growing rod procedure can be safely and effectively used in outpatient settings, and minimises surgical scarring and psychological distress, improves quality of life, and is more cost–effective than is the traditional growing rod procedure. The technique could be used for non–invasive correction of abnormalities in other disorders.
