Abstract


Purpose. To develop optimal diagnostic and therapeutic measures aimed at improving the outcomes of treatment in patients with neuromuscular spinal deformities.
Materials and Methods. Surgical treatment for the spine correction and fixation performed in 28 patients at the age of 4-27 years, single-stage treatment – in 19 patients (using dorsal approach) and two-stage one – in 9 patients (using ventral approach at first and dorsal access further).
Results. Good and satisfactory results achieved, the correction of scoliotic deformity averaged 56.2%.
Conclusion. As a result of scoliosis surgical correction trunk balance improves, the spine and chest deformity progression prevents, and the possibility of self-service gets better in this group patients.
