Although posterior spinal fusion is a mainstay of scoliosis treatment, emerging technologies may provide non-fusion treatment options. Tune in for an efficient summary of current techniques to address scoliosis and preserve growth and/or mobility over the instrumented segments, including:
- Posterior Distraction-Based Non-Fusion Techniques
- Growing Rod Techniques
- Modern Luque Trolley
- Anterior Vertebral Body Tethering
Wrap up the event with dedicated Q&A discussion with your six expert faculty.
At the conclusion of this webinar, learners should be able to:
Describe indications for specific non-fusion scoliosis techniques as well as current regulatory status of the approach.
Delineate which approaches allow for ongoing spinal growth and which allow for mobility over the instrumented segments and provide an overview of supporting data.
Understand common complications and pitfalls for each treatment.
