Application technique of Cotrel-Dubousset instrumentation for scoliosis deformities.

Author information

Hospital St. Vincent de Paul, Paris, France.


Used in over 600 cases, the posterior Cotrel-Dubousset spinal instrumentation device has become the device of choice. This technique allows the most effective correction for all kinds of spinal deformities. It requires lengthy preoperative planning and is a technically demanding surgical procedure; however, because of its versatility it can be adapted to most spinal deformities. The Cotrel- Dubousset technique is a rigid system of immobilization, and, because it does not require any postoperative immobilization, patients are able to resume their normal lives and activities very quickly.
