Effect of neuroelectrophysiological changes on the clinical manifestations and surgical outcomes of lumbar degenerative diseases – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

This article examines the effects of electromyography (EMG) on the clinical manifestations and prognosis of patients who underwent posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) for degenerative lumbar diseases. A retrospective analysis was performed on 68 patients who underwent PLIF surgery, and they were divided into negative and positive groups based on the results of their EMG. The study found that patients with normal EMG had a shorter duration of illness and faster recovery after PLIF compared to those with abnormal EMG. However, the results of EMG did not have an impact on the final prognosis of PLIF surgery. Overall, PLIF was effective in improving symptoms and clinical signs in both groups. The study suggests that EMG can be a valuable tool for evaluating patients with degenerative lumbar diseases before PLIF surgery

CONCLUSION: Patients with normal electromyography had shorter disease duration than ones with abnormal electromyography in lumbar degenerative disease;after PLIF, patients with normal electromyography recovered faster than ones with abnormal electromyography, but the results of electromyography had no effect on the final prognosis of PLIF surgery.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of electromyography on the clinical manifestations and prognosis after posterior lumbar interbody fusion(PLIF) of degenerative lumbar diseases.

METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed on 68 patients with degenerative lumbar diseases, including 29 males and 39 females, aged 21 to 84 years old, who underwent electromyogram (EMG) from January 2018 to October 2019. The patients were divided into negative and positive groups according to whether theresults of EMG was normal or abnormal, PLIF surgery was performed in both groups. The preoperative duration of illness, postoperative recovery time, operative time, intraoperative blood loss, postoperative ambulation time and length of postoperative hospital stay were recorded. The clinical efficacy was evaluated by visual analogue scale(VAS) of low back and lower limb, the Japanese Orthopedic Association(JOA) score before and after operation.

RESULTS: All patients were follow-up from 26 to 39 months. The subjective symptoms, clinical signs, daily activities and JOA total scores after operation in two groups were significantly higher than those before preoperation(P<0.05);the clinical signs score and total JOA score in the negative group at 3 months after operation were higher than those in the positive group(P<0.05). The VAS score of leg pain in the negative group after 1 and 3 months was less than that in the positive group(P<0.05). Patients 's illness time, postoperative recovery time, hospitalization time and implantation time in the negative group were shorter than those in the positive group(P<0.05). At other time points, there was no significant difference in low pain VAS, leg pain VAS, JOA scores in the two groups(P>0.05). There was no significant difference in the operation time and intraoperative bleeding volume between the two groups(P>0.05).

CONCLUSION: Patients with normal electromyography had shorter disease duration than ones with abnormal electromyography in lumbar degenerative disease;after PLIF, patients with normal electromyography recovered faster than ones with abnormal electromyography, but the results of electromyography had no effect on the final prognosis of PLIF surgery.
