Surgery must also be taken into consideration if any gradual increase in the size of the meningocele sac is observed during careful follow-up examinations of the patient and any neurological and/or cardiopulmonary complications are diagnosed or when an operative correction is required for a patient's kyphoscoliosis (9).
The patients with CD that survived after neonatal period developed a progressive kyphoscoliosis [8].
The aim of this study was to present the results of average period of five-year follow-up in patients, diagnosed with congenital scoliosis and kyphoscoliosis and treated with transpedicular instrumentation and fusion methods after hemivertebra resection with the posterior approach.

The excessive eating due to hyperphagia and/or obsession with food contributes to significant weight gain, which together with musculoskeletal deformity, like kyphoscoliosis and deranged hypoxic ventilator function, can lead to severe respiratory problems [3,4].
