AbstractDespite the myriad new spinal instrumentation systems, scoliosis can rarely be fully corrected, especially when the curves are stiff. A novel superelastic nickel-titanium (nitinol) rod that maximises the ability to slowly correct spinal deformities by utilising the viscoelastic properties of the spine has been developed. This parallel, double-blinded, randomised controlled trial compared the safety and efficacy of these new rods to conventional titanium rods in 23 patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. The superelastic nitinol rods were found to be safe, could gradually correct scoliosis curves, and ultimately resulted in better coronal and sagittal alignments compared to traditional rods.
