AbstractINTRODUCTION: Current implant technologies only correct scoliosis at the time of surgery but cannot fully correct the deformity. A novel superelastic nitinol rod than can maximize curve correction by gradually correcting the scoliosis after surgery has been developed. This is a parallel, double-blinded, randomized controlled trial comparing the safety and efficacy of these nitinol rods (Group 1) to …
