the correction and stabilization of the deformity have developed a lot since the incorporation of lumbar pedicle screws, which are the gold standard of spinal instrumentation today.


to describe the results of the modifications made to the hybrid instrumentation technique for the treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.


a case series intervention study was carried out with 50 patients operated on for scoliosis in adolescence, divided into two groups. Group A composed of 31 patients, operated on with three different instrumentation techniques and group B composed of 19 patients operated with a hybrid instrumentation technique, modified by the author, in the province of Cienfuegos, in the period between January of 2013 and December 2017.


The 96% of the patients were female; the average age was 14 years old. In group A, the best results were achieved with full pedicle fixation with the 89.4% post-surgical correction; the 81.9% was achieved with the technique modified by the author, with minimal complications. Patient satisfaction was the 96% in group A and in patients in whom the author's modification was used, satisfaction was the 100%.


the hybrid instrumentation system modified by the author achieves an excellent correction of the curve with a high degree of patient satisfaction.
