Erken başlangıçlı skolyoz (EBS), birçok farklı etiyoloji (konjenital, nöromüsküler, infantil ve jüvenil idiopatik, çeşitli sendromik skolyozlar) sahip skolyoz tipini kapsar. Spinal enstrümantasyon sistemlerinin gelişmesi sonrası; çift rod tekniği Mc Carty tarafından tanımlanmış, Akbarnia ve Marks tarafından geliştirilerek popüler hale gelmiştir. Büyüyen rod tekniğinin amacı; spinal büyümeye izin vererek spinal deformitenin düzeltilmesini sağlamak ve korumaktır. Büyüyen rod sistemi, EBSʼlarda 45˚ den büyük eğriliklerde ve 10 yaşından küçük hastalarda tercih edilmektedir.
Many different etiologies such as infantile and juvenile idiopathic scoliosis, congenital scoliosis, neuromuscular scoliosis, and various syndromes may cause progressive spinal deformities grouped under early-onset scoliosis. After the development of spinal instrumentation system; dual rods described by McCarthy, Akbarnia and Marks have developed and currently use a dual growing-rod technique. The goal of the growing rod technique is to achieve deformity correction and maintain it during the treatment period while allowing continued spinal growth. Growing rod system for the treatment of early-onset scoliosis prefer over curve 45˚ and patient younger than 10 years
