17+5-year-old female had a very unusual and severe deformity following attempted treatment of her congenital scoliosis 4 years prior. This was complicated by neurologic problems from which she slowly recovered. However, her scoliosis progressed and produced a marked truncal decompensation to the right, which progressed over time. She underwent a complex two-stage reconstruction all done posteriorly. During the second stage, she had a proximal thoracic VCR to realign her completely fused cervicothoracic scoliosis with an ultimate instrumentation and fusion from the mid-cervical spine down to her sacrum and pelvis.
