Limited exposure is required at the upper and lower ends of the spinal construct. Implants are passed subfascially through a space created by a shunt passer and chest tube.

Two patients had fracture of the implant that occurred as a result of contouring of the hybrid rod near the rod sleeve attachment.

Radiographs illustrate the case of a female patient with neuromuscular scoliosis (Patient 14). (A) A pretreatment radiograph shows the initial deformity. (B) The first rib-based construct resulted in a progression of the deformity 1 year after implant. (C) The first construct was converted to a rib-to-pelvis construct. (D) The left rod was removed after three proximal rib fractures, distal anchor migration, and revisions. (E) The construct was converted to a VEPTR™ spine-based construct using conventional spine implants for anchors.
