AB - Aims The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of surgery using growing
rods in patients with severe versus moderate early-onset scoliosis (EOS).
Patients and Methods A review of a multicentre EOS database identified 107
children with severe EOS (major curve >/= 90 degrees ) treated with growing rods
before the age of ten years with a minimum follow-up of two years and three or
more lengthening procedures. From the same database, 107 matched controls with
moderate EOS were identified. Results The mean preoperative major curve was 101
degrees (90 to 139) in the severe group and 67 degrees (33 degrees to 88 degrees
) in the moderate group (p < 0.001), which was corrected at final follow-up to 57
degrees (10 degrees to 96 degrees ) in the severe group and 40 degrees (3 degrees
to 85 degrees ) in the moderate group (p < 0.001). T1-S1 height increased by a
mean of 54 mm (-8 to 131) in the severe group and 27 mm (-4 to 131) in the
moderate group at the initial surgery (p < 0.001), and by 50 mm (-17 to 200) and
54 mm (-11 to 212), respectively, during distraction (p = 0.84). The mean number
of complications per patient was 2.6 (0 to 14) in the severe group and 1.9 (0 to
10) in the moderate group (p = 0.040). Five patients (4.7%) in the severe group
and three (2.8%) in the moderate group developed a neurological deficit
postoperatively (p = 0.47). Conclusion Severe EOS can be treated effectively
using growing rods, but the risk of complications is high. Cite this article:
