The treatment of severe structural kyphosis poses a difficult problem. The use of an anterior fusion has proven to be an integral part of the surgical treatment of any kyphosis. In addition, the use of multiple struts has helped solve the treatment problem in severe kyphosis. The use of multiple struts and the role of vascularized grafts, technical details, complications, and errors and how to prevent them are discussed in the current study.
