Evaluation and analysis of surgical treatment for single-level or multi-level lumbar degenerative disease based on radiography – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

The article examines the impact of preoperative X-ray evaluation on the surgical treatment of patients with single- or multi-level lumbar degenerative disease. A retrospective cohort analysis of 172 patients who underwent lumbar fusion surgery was conducted, with various radiographic parameters measured and correlated with surgical outcomes. The study found that certain factors such as the height of the iliac crest, iliac angle, facet joint degeneration, and surgical segment significantly influenced the surgical treatments. These findings suggest that preoperative radiographic measurements can provide valuable insights for surgeons to optimize the outcomes of lumbar surgery by tailoring the approach based on individual patient characteristics

ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND: Radiography has a low level of radiation exposure while providing valuable information. Due to its cost effectiveness and widespread availability, the preoperative radiographic imaging examination is a valuable approach for assessing patients with spinal disease. This study aimed to examine the influence of preoperative X-ray evaluation on the surgical treatment of patients with single- or multi-level lumbar degenerative disease (LDD).

METHODS: A retrospective cohort analysis was conducted of 172 patients diagnosed with LDD who underwent transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) or posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) surgery between December 2021 and February 2023 at the Shanghai Changzheng Hospital. Various parameters were measured on preoperative radiographs, including the iliac crest height, median iliac angle (MIA), lumbar lordosis (LL), intervertebral facet joint degeneration, lumbosacral angle (LSA), intervertebral foramen height (IFH), and surgical segment. The surgical treatment was evaluated based on the operative time, intraoperative blood loss, and postoperative complications. A correlation analysis and independent sample t-tests were used to assess the relationship between preoperative radiographic variables and surgical treatments. Further, a multivariate linear regression analysis was employed to identify the risk factors affecting the clinical outcomes.

RESULTS: The correlation analysis and t-test results showed that the MIA, height of the iliac crest, intervertebral facet joint degeneration, and surgical segment were significantly correlated with the surgical treatments (P<0.05). Specifically, the height of the iliac crest, intervertebral facet joint degeneration, and surgical segment were positively correlated with the surgical treatments. Conversely, the MIA was negatively correlated with the surgical treatments. However, no significant differences were observed between the IFH, LSA, and LL in relation to posterior lumbar surgery (P>0.05). The multiple linear regression analysis showed that the height of the iliac crest, MIA, intervertebral facet joint degeneration, and surgical segment were independent factors affecting the surgical treatments of patients with single- or multi-level LDD. These findings highlight the importance of considering these factors when planning and performing lumbar surgery.

S: The measurements taken from radiographs, including the height of the iliac crest, MIA, intervertebral facet joint degeneration, and surgical segment, demonstrate potential influences on the treatment of single- and multi-level lumbar spine surgery. These variables can be captured in plain film imaging and can provide valuable insights into the surgical procedure and offer guidance for the operation. By analyzing these radiographic measurements, surgeons can gain a better understanding of a patient’s condition and tailor the surgical approach accordingly, thus optimizing the outcomes of the surgery.
