If you are interested in learning more about what the VEPTR is, you can visit here and watch the videos below.
What is early onset scoliosis? Why is it different than "regular" scoliosis? What is Thoracic Insufficiency Syndrome?
This video explains some of the testing Abby has had or will be having.
Here, you can see what the VEPTR looks like and how it is implanted and expanded. (This is not from CHOP, but it is done the same way)
We have some other videos we were sent on a disc, but these are the ones I could find on You Tube!
