The “kickstand rod” technique for correction of coronal malalignment: two-year clinical and radiographic outcomes

Purpose: Restoring coronal alignment in spine deformity patients has been shown to play an important role in improving patient reported outcomes (PRO). Recently, the "kickstand rod" (KSR) technique was developed as a novel coronal correction method in complex spine deformity cases. The goal of the present study was to assess outcomes of this technique at two years of follow-up. Read More >
