Using the “cantilever” manoeuvre, the deformity was reduced and the stems were fixed in the distal segments. A genetic and linkage study”. The degree of kyphosis can be measured by Cobb’s angle and sagittal balance. Typically, however, once the patient is fully grown, the bones will maintain the deformity.

Two other studies evaluating the posterior approach using the hook system showed loosening of the hooks in three cases out scheyermann 27, requiring two subsequent surgeries 4 ; in the other study, there was breaking of the stem in one case out of 30, requiring revision surgery and resulting in one patient with loss of correction, and pain Other etiologies reported include shortening of the ischiotibial musculature 9 and mechanical factors that would trigger secondary remodelling responses, such as reduction of sternal size 2, No valid questionnaire of satisfaction and improvement in quality of life was applied in this study; however, for the next follow-up, the SRS questionnaire will be applied.

The purpose of this treatment is to level out the sample and avoid any statistical bias. The number of transversal devices varied as necessary during surgery.

There was no difference in the correction obtained after surgery or after end of the follow-up.
