STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective chart evaluation.
OBJECTIVES: To establish elements predictive of survival after spinal wire damage (SCI).
SETTING: Tertiary care establishment.
METHODS: A number of-variable Cox proportional hazards regression evaluation for 759 sufferers with SCI (535 nontraumatic and 221 traumatic) included age, intercourse, completeness of damage, stage of damage, useful independence measure (FIM) scores, rehabilitation size of keep and SCI trigger. Estimated years of life misplaced within the decade after damage was calculated for sufferers vs unhurt controls.
RESULTS: Median follow-up was 11.Four years. Inhabitants traits included paraplegia, 58%; full damage, 11%; male intercourse, 64%; and median rehabilitation size of keep, 16 days. Elements independently predictive of decreased survival had been elevated age (+10 years; hazard ratio (HR (95% CI)), 1.6 (1.Four-1.7)), male intercourse (1.Three (1.Zero-1.6)), decrease dismissal FIM rating (-10 factors; 1.Three (1.2-1.Three)) and all nontraumatic causes. Metastatic most cancers had the biggest lower in survival (HR (95% CI), 13.Three (eight.7-20.2)). Major tumors (HR (95% CI), 2.5 (1.7-Three.eight)), vascular (2.5 (1.6-Three.eight)), musculoskeletal/stenosis (1.7 (1.2-2.5)) and different nontraumatic SCI (2.Three (1.5-Three.6)) had been related to decreased survival. Ten-year survival was decreased in nontraumatic SCI (imply (s.d.), 1.eight (Zero.Three) years misplaced), with largest decreases in survival for metastatic most cancers and spinal wire ischemia.
CONCLUSIONS: Age, male intercourse and decrease dismissal FIM rating had been related to decreased survival, however neither damage severity nor stage was related to it. Survival after SCI varies relying on SCI trigger, with survival higher after traumatic SCI than after nontraumatic SCI. Metastatic most cancers and vascular ischemia had been related to the best survival discount.
