The results of 64 posterior fusions for scoliosis are presented. Also the first detection of the curves and the preoperative treatment is discussed.
Details are given about the immediate and late post-operative complications and about the correction loss. Interesting too, is an investigation of more subjective information, concerning the postoperative physical and social status. These last problems are not very often discussed in studies of scoliosis.
