|Figure 1: A good
in-brace correction in a patient with rigid kyphosis in a
kyphosis brace of recent design showing a release of the anterior
growth plates. Patient with rigid kyphosis in a kyphosis brace of
recent design. The in-brace correction is >20∘ and on the
right picture the opening of the intervertebral spaces is visible.
Therefore we can expect an end result correction when the brace
is worn, because the ventral growth plates have been released
from pressure (taken from  BMC open access).
