AbstractThis is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows: The objectives of this systematic review are to determine the effectiveness and safety of spinal surgery in DMD patients with scoliosis. We intend to test the following hypotheses: (1) Whether spinal surgery is effective in increasing life expectancy; (2) Whether spinal surgery can improve respiratory function in the short-term and long-term; (3) Whether spinal surgery can improve quality of life and overall functioning; (4) Whether spinal surgery is associated with severe adverse effects.
