Abstract

Scoliosis causing neurologic deficit is rare. Nonoperative treatment has been shown to be unsuccessful in reversing the condition or preventing further neurologic progression. Surgical intervention using the Hyndman-Schneider approach (costotransversectomy and apical pedicle resection) decompresses the spinal cord by transposing it into the concavity of the deformity. Although it is a demanding procedure with significant risks, lateral spinal cord transposition is the preferable procedure to provide full neurologic recovery in successful cases.
