Scoliosis, kyphosis, and sacral agenesis (SA) are common spine deformities in myelomeningocele (MMC) patients. Surgery of spine deformities in MMC patients is associated with various difficulties as infection, pathological skin breakage, instrumentation failure, and neurological deterioration. The purposes of this study are to share our clinical experience and discuss different surgical techniques which are defined in the literature.
