Abstract


Aim of study. To analyze the experience of usage of VEPTR and VEPTR II instrumentation in treatment of congenital spine deformities in infants and young children. Materials and methods. The data of 6 children (aged from 1 year 5 months to 8 years old) who underwent surgical treatment of vertebral column and thorax deformities were investigated. We applied different variants of VEPTR construction set, such as «rib-rib», «rib-spine», «rib-pelvis», «spine-spine», and estimated the possibility of effective correction. Results. We elaborated an algorhythm which helps to choose different VEPTR-endocorrector sets in treatment of congenital spine deformities in infants and young children.
