Twenty-four patients with Scheuermann's kyphosis underwent correction of the deformity through a combined anterior and posterior spine fusion. All patients had a solid arthrodesis and most were relieved of their preoperative pain. Deformity was improved in all patients. Significant loss of correction did not occur in the fusion area but it did occur below the posterior arthrodesis in five patients.
