BACKGROUND: The choice of implants in neuromuscular scoliosis (NMS) surgery remains controversial. Sublaminar polyester bands (SPBs) seem to be a promising alternative implant. The purpose of current study was to compare clinical and radiologic results of posterior instrumentation and fusion using hybrid constructs versus only pedicle screws for NMS treatment.
