Abstract

At minimum 5 yr f/u, distraction-based surgeries (Spine-based (SB)&Rib-based (RB)) are an effective way to increase spine length for non-idiopathic EOS. Spine length is greater for spine based implants pre-operatively and this length is maintained to the 15th lengthening; however, if normalized to pre-op spine length, rib-based implants achieved greater percentage of increase in spine length beyond the 10th lengthening surgeries.
