Bergoin M.; Bollini, G.; Gennari, J. M.Journal of Pediatric Orthopaedics B: 1992 Spinal Surgery Before Age 5 Years: PDF Only Buy Abstract Summary We report a series of 11 patients aged <5 years with congenital oblique takeoff. A one-stage combined posterior and anterior resection and fusion technique was used to treat these patients. Functional and cosmetic results were excellent, with good correction of trunk imbalance. Early operation for oblique takeoff in congenital takeoff due to lumbosacral hemivertabrae is recommended. © Williams & Wilkins 1992. All Rights Reserved.
