Abstract

The authors present the outcome of 42 patients operated at birth for closure of the spinal malformation. The age of patients at first observation ranged from 3 months to 21 years (mean 8.3 years); 7 patients (16.7%) had a close spina bifida, 35 (83.3%) had an open spina bifida and 30 (85.7%) of them developed hydrocephalus. The protocol included neurological evaluation, determination of development quotient using the Griffith's scale and intelligence quotient using the Wise-R scale. Adolescents underwent also the Blacky pictures test and Offer's interview. Verticalization and tutorial deambulation were achieved in 95.2% of patients; 76% of patients had a I.Q. > 90. The emotional situation was unsatisfactory in the majority of patients due to reduced autonomy and limited self-consideration.
