GSS™  Early Onset Scoliosis 

Growing Rod System

Designed for treatment of progressive pediatric spinal deformity. This system allows continuous expansion and anatomical distraction in line with patients’ growth. With dual growing rod system and less invasive surgery, it provides adequate correction

Indications

 

Congenital Scoliosis (malformation of the vertebral segments)

Infantile Idiopathic Scoliosis (age 0 – 3 years)

Juvenile Idiopathic Scoliosis (age 4 – 10 years)

Neuromuscular Scoliosis

Expansion Procedure

After initial surgery (inserting of Growing Rod System), the lengthening procedure is necessary for every 6months, as the spine grows. 2. Exposure Identify the approximate location of the a pinion gear. Make a transverse of longitudinal incision over the distraction lock. 3. Lengthening The screw driver engages the set screw and is rotated clockwise. Rotating 1 turn will allow for incremental lengthening of 2mm 4. This lengthening procedure will be performed until the spine grows up to its full length when the spinal fusion surgery is needed
