Today's challenge: 105 degree scoliosis in 11 YO girl

Surgery went great at WakeMed (for Carly with a C).
Notice the lung compression on MRI. Her pulmonary function tests were abnormal.
Nice correction.
Surgical time: 5 hrs 8 min.
Complications: none.
Ebl: 500
Blood transfused: none.
Great day!

Our 14 Yo scoliosis young lady from Monday (Karly with a K) was wandering halls w her parents looking quite straight an happy. She went home from Duke Raleigh Hospital this am.
