Nine patients were reviewed after surgery (mean follow-up 18 months). There were 2 thoracic, 4 thoraco-lumbar and 3 lumbar kyphosis. The mean age at surgery was 23.

Clinical results were evaluated by the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) and by the neurologic evaluation. Preoperative, postoperative and final follow-up X-rays were assessed.

The surgery included a posterior approach with cord release and correction by transpedicular wedge osteotomy and widening of the spinal canal.
