Prognosis is affected by the amount of slippage. In general, most patients with less than 50% slippage fend to fare well through adolescence. With slippage of 50% or greater, the potential for additional slippage with growth and aging is greater. The small numbers of patients who do not respond to conservative medical management are evaluated for a spinal fusion.
