Lecture: Complications and Revision in Neuromuscular, Congenital and Syndromic Scoliosis

DOI 10.28962/01.3.165

This spine surgery lecture looks at the complications encountered in the surgical treatment of neuromuscular, congenital and syndromic scoliosis. It begins with an examination of the core issues affecting these patients with non-idiopathic scoliosis. The surgery itself is challenging but the complications are even more difficult to manage. The complications frequently encountered in the operative treatment of these cases are presented, and the revision strategies are explored with examples from clinical cases treated appropriately.
