Abstract

Scoliosis in children with arthrogryposis occurs in the minority of patients, but appears early, often present at birth. Curves can progress quickly. Treatment options include spine casting, bracing, expandable implant surgery, and spinal fusion. The goal is to allow as much chest growth and development as possible, along with a resulting well-balanced spine.
