Case Study: Scoliosis

This is a 15-year-old girl with a progressive right thoracolumbar scoliosis which had become painful and resulted in an unsightly deformity of her back. The curve was corrected with surgery using spinal instrumentation which includes two titanium rods attached to the vertebra with screws and a novel device utilizing soft Dacron straps placed beneath the lamina of the vertebra which then allows the spine to be pulled straight against the rods.
