Serial p-a radiographs during deformity correction, at the preoperative, at immediate postop, at 72 hours and 2 weeks (upper line: treated group; lower line: untreated group). In the untreated group there was a slight decrease of deformity after tethering release but the deformity remained stable and permanent over time; in the treated group, gradual correction of the kyphoscoliosis was noted with the Cobb angle decreasing over time.
