Surgical treatment of adult idiopathic scoliosis – comparison of two instrumentations

In this study, 22 women patients with adult idiopathic scoliosis treated surgically with Cotrel-Dubousset instrumentation (CDI) or Texas Scottish Rite Hospital instrumentation (TSRHI) were followed up for 56.2+/-4.0 months. The overall immediate and final corrections were respectively 21.5+/-40 (58%) and 26.6+/-2.90 (48%), giving a loss of correction of 5.1+/-1.00 (10%). No significant differences were found in these two parameters between the two groups. The functional outcomes were good in 21 patients. There was no difference between CDI and TSRHI in deformity correction
