Abstract: Objectives: to report the results on the treatment of scoliosis in spinal muscular atrophy, using posterior arthrodesis with pedicle screws. Methods: a retrospective study was carried out with 16 patients who underwent posterior spinal fusion with pedicle screws. The general status of the patients, correction of the Cobb angle, correction of pelvic obliquity and early complications were analyzed. Results: the initial Cobb angle mean was 94.6° (65 to 132°) turning into 40, 4° (2 to 20°) after the surgery, correction of 57.2%. The initial pelvic obliquity mean was 34.7° (25 to 56°) turning into 11.3° (0 to 20°), correction of 67.4%. Conclusions: the treatment of scoliosis in spinal muscular atrophy using posterior arthrodesis with pedicle screws presents a great potential of correction for the coronal deformity and pelvic obliquity, without serious early complications.
