Abstract

A study of 119 early onset scoliosis (EOS) who underwent magnetically controlled growing rod (MCGR) treatment suggests that more than 4 distractions per year yields greater rates of rod lengthening but no significant differences in spine length gain compared to less than 4 distractions per year.
