Seems like the brace only delayed the progression given she stated progressing again once she stopped wearing the brace at maturity.

Also, this obviously goes against the paradigm that 30* is protective against progression to surgical levels.


Unbelievably, less than eight weeks post that surgery, she competed at the 2012 US Olympic Swim Team Trials for a spot on the US Olympic Swim Team that competed in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

That's something!

Remember that nothing is 100%. She could be 1 out of100 or 99 out of 100. :-)
