Prof. Nicola Portinaro attended the conference as moderator and he also gave a lecture on “The severe musculoskeletal deformities” where different clinical cases were presented and discussed.
The goal of the day was to compare the different experiences of the Italian Spina Bifida centers
in the management of some fundamental issues of patients affected by this congenital pathology.
