Spinal deformity is one of the problematic ıssues of spine surgery. The variety of spinal deformities, the differences in pathomechanism cause different treatment methods. Another important factor is some deformities exist with spinal instability. The aim of surgical treatment in spinal deformity is to correct the existing deformities and to stabilize the spine. Therefore, particularly the fusion method, osteotomies and instrumentation applied to almost all cases. On the other hand, the well known complications and side effects of fusion method lead researchers to develop new techniques to stabilize the spine. In recent years, posterior dynamic and hybrid systems are used in deformity. These new systems have the advanteges such as to eliminate some complication and minimize some problems that occurs following fusion method. The reports including short term follow-up with dynamic an/or hybrid systems encourage spine surgeons to use these systems in the treatment of spinal deformity.
