Abstract: Objective: To report the results of the surgical treatment of congenital lumbar kyphosis related to myelomeningocele. Methods: Retrospective study, with 31 patients, mean age of 10 years old, treated only by posterior approach with a Dunn-McCarthy procedure. The mean follow up was about 22 months (5 to 60 months). We evaluated the potential correction, correction loss, percentage of fusion and complications. Results: The average preoperative kyphosis of 114o (60° to 183°) was corrected to 37° (-63° to 180°) according to the radiograph obtained in the last visit. The global rate of complications was 46%; however the surgical morbidity was very low. The fusion rate was 80%. Conclusion: This procedure is efficient, with a high potential for correction and fusion, and low potential for loss of correction.
