CONCLUSIONS: Further evaluation of the association of IMU-derived temporospatial gait with self-reported physical function, pain related-disability, neurogenic claudication, and spinal stenosis symptom severity score in LSS would help clarify their role in tracking LSS outcomes.Lumbar Disc Replacement Expert.

Abstract

Objective: To evaluate the association of self-reported physical function with subjective and objective measures as well as temporospatial gait features in lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS).

Design: Cross-sectional pilot study.

Setting: Outpatient multispecialty clinic.

Participants: Participants with LSS and matched controls without LSS (n=10 per group; N=20).

Interventions: Not applicable.

Main outcome measures: Self-reported physical function (36-Item Short Form Health Survey physical functioning domain), Oswestry Disability Index, Swiss Spinal Stenosis Questionnaire, the Neurogenic Claudication Outcome Score, and inertia measurement unit (IMU)-derived temporospatial gait features.

Results: Higher self-reported physical function scores (SF-36 physical functioning) correlated with lower disability ratings, neurogenic claudication, and symptom severity ratings in patients with LSS (P<.05). Compared with controls without LSS, patients with LSS have lower scores on physical capacity measures (median total distance traveled on 6-minute walk test: controls 505 m vs LSS 316 m; median total distance traveled on self-paced walking test: controls 718 m vs LSS 174 m). Observed differences in IMU-derived gait features, physical capacity measures, disability ratings, and neurogenic claudication scores between populations with and without LSS were statistically significant.

Conclusions: Further evaluation of the association of IMU-derived temporospatial gait with self-reported physical function, pain related-disability, neurogenic claudication, and spinal stenosis symptom severity score in LSS would help clarify their role in tracking LSS outcomes.
