A new orthosis for immediate postoperative bracing in idiopathic scoliosis

, : A new orthosis for immediate postoperative bracing in idiopathic scoliosis. Spine 8(8): 915-918

The "crutch-type scoliosis brace" and the KSO are leather covered aluminum braces, which have been successfully used in treating scoliosis patients at the Kosair Spinal Deformity Center both nonoperatively and postoperatively. This report defines the measurements, materials, and construction details for effective use of these braces and reports the very encouraging results of the KSO in a group of instrumented idiopathic scoliotic patients.
