102 children have been treated at the Institute of Traumatology, Orthopaedics & Neurosurgery a result of scoliosis. In all of these multi-step treatment has been applied. Initiallya telescopic rod was implanted into the spine. Allografts were introduced around the rod hook, after 6 or 8 months, when angle of scoliosis increased, the rod was exchanged for a longer one. The final step was performed when conditions permitted and the scoliosis was markedly corrected and the fusion of the spine with the solid allograft was accomplished. The result of treatment was evaluated I to 7 years after surgery. Bone allografts were rebuilt within 6 month. Correction of scoliosis of 50% to 70% was achieved in all cases.
