Management of Spinal Deformity in Neurofibromatosis Type 1

Location: http://proceedings.jbjs.org.uk/cgi/content/abstract/87-B/SUPP_III/236-b

Presentation 2004: Conclusions: Non-dystrophic curves maybe treated by posterior fusion alone achieving 60% Cobb correction and 55% AVT correction. Close observation should be maintained for the appearance of dystrophic features and deterioration of correction. Dystrophic curves should be treated early and aggressively by two/three stage apical vertebrectomy, grafting and posterior...
