Default Re: Marfans post scoli operation

Thank you for your quick reply.
Could you please advise me whether or not a fused part of the upper thoracic spine has the possibility to improve? As I understand it, surgeons often leave the upper curve untouched as it is often a compensating curve which will often correct itself. With this logic in mind, surely the upper curve now fused and rodded and corrected by 6 degrees, does not have a chance to improve? Is this correct?
