Ms, A, a 10 year old bubbly girl is one of the twins born prematurely.When she was about 3 years old,her mother noticed that her back was bent to the left.They visited various hospitals sporadically and when the deformity was quiet evident,she presented to us at the age of 7 years. She was diagnosed to have an Early Onset Scoliosis.

It was a left thoracic curve from T5 to T12 measuring 55 degrees.MRI showed no spinal card anomaly. It required surgical corrections. However instrumentation and fusion at the age of 7 years would stunt the growth of her lungs and hence she was treated with Growth Rods with anchors T4 & 5 and T12 & L1(Synthes USS ll System). aThe rods were distracted once in 6 months maintaining correction and allowing development of lungs. She underwent 3 more such distractions after the index surgery at 6 monthly intervals.
