Quality of Life with Respect to Surgically Treated Vertebral Osteomyelitis and Degenerative Spondylolisthesis – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

This article compares the quality of life after surgical therapy for vertebral osteomyelitis (VO) and degenerative spondylolisthesis (SL), two commonly treated spinal conditions. The study, conducted at a single center, enrolled patients with VO and SL from the Spine Tango Registry. Surgical procedures involved fusion of affected segments. Quality of life was assessed using the Core Outcome Measures Index (COMI) and the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) at different time points. The analysis included 52 patients with VO and 48 patients with SL. The length of stay was significantly shorter in the SL group. The preoperative ODI score was significantly higher in the VO group, but there were no significant differences in COMI scores. Postoperative quality of life scores were comparable in both groups, suggesting that lumbar fusion surgery achieved similar outcomes for chronic back pain in patients with different indications and medical conditions. These findings have implications for preoperative assessment and surgical indications for SL

ABSTRACT

Vertebral osteomyelitis (VO) and degenerative spondylolisthesis (SL) are 2 commonly treated spinal conditions. Therefore, in the presented work, the quality of life after surgical therapy of these 2 entities is compared using established scores.In a monocentric study, all patients with VO and SL were prospectively enrolled using the Spine Tango Registry. Surgical procedures included one- or two-stage fusion of the affected segments. Quality of life was assessed using the Core Outcome Measures Index (COMI) and the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) at time points t0 (0 months), t1 (12 months), and t2 (24 months). Statistical analysis was performed using SPSS. The level of significance was set at 5%.52 patients with VO and 48 patients with SL were included in the analysis. There were no significant differences in age and gender distribution. The length of stay in the SL group was significantly shorter (p < 0.001). ODI at time t0 was significantly higher in the VO group (p < 0.001), whereas COMI scores did not differ significantly (p = 0.155). At time points t1 and t2, the differences between the VO and SL groups were not significantly different for either the ODI score (p = 0.176; p = 0.250) or the COMI score (p = 0.682; p = 0.640).Postoperative quality of life scores after lumbar fusion surgery in SL and VO are comparable despite different indications and medical conditions. In both groups, similar quality of life with in patient with chronic back pain was achieved. This should be considered for the preoperative assessment, as well as for the indication for surgery in SL.
