BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Postoperative Urinary Retention (POUR) is a quite common post-operative complication of all surgical procedures (5 – 70%) that will result in problems equivalent to urinary tract an infection (UTI), bladder over-distention, autonomic dysregulation, and elevated postoperative size of keep (LOS). Inside the discipline of backbone surgical procedure, the reported incidence of POUR is extremely variable (5.6 – 38%). Lack of clear stratification of surgical stage, spinal pathology, and insufficient pattern measurement is a serious limitation of obtainable research regarding POUR following backbone surgical procedure that will result in inconsistency within the incidence of POUR and the power to mannequin its prevalence and penalties.
PURPOSE: This examine examines the incidence, predictive elements, and problems of POUR in sufferers present process elective posterior lumbar decompression with or with out fusion for lumbar stenosis with the intention to get rid of bias from learning procedures achieved in numerous anatomical areas and with completely different approaches. Moreover, this examine intends to establish the implications of POUR.
STUDY DESIGN/SETTING: A retrospective consecutive cohort evaluation was carried out to look at sufferers present process posterior lumbar decompression who did and didn’t develop POUR.
PATIENT SAMPLE: All sufferers present process posterior lumbar decompression with or with out fusion for lumbar stenosis with claudication from January 2014 by way of December 2015 at our establishment had been evaluated. Sufferers beneath the age of 18 and sufferers with spinal malignancies or infections had been excluded.
OUTCOME MEASURES: Physiological measures included identification of POUR by proof of re-insertion of a Foley catheter, use of straight catherization post-operatively, or by a transparent medical prognosis with pharmacological remedy. Different physiological measures included identification of improvement of UTI, sepsis, acute kidney damage (AKI), surgical website an infection, or readmission inside 90 days after surgical procedure, in addition to LOS and discharge disposition.
METHODS: There have been no exterior funding sources and no authors had any conflicts of curiosity. The digital medical file was looked for all sufferers assembly inclusion and exclusion standards. POUR was outlined as re-insertion of a Foley catheter, use of straight catherization post-operatively, or by a transparent medical prognosis with pharmacological remedy. Statistical evaluation was carried out in R statistical software program bundle model three.three.2. A number of variable choice strategies had been used to find out applicable variables for regression fashions, and logistic fashions had been match to the event of POUR and post-operative problems, whereas a linear regression mannequin was used for LOS.
RESULTS: Knowledge was collected on 1592 consecutive sufferers. Among the many pattern inhabitants, the imply age at surgical procedure was 67 (SD 10.1) and 45% of sufferers had been feminine. The incidence of POUR was 17.1% (273/1592). Elevated age (odds ratio [OR] = 1.04; 95% confidence interval [CI], 1.02 – 1.06; p < zero.001), benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) (OR = 1.92; 95% CI, 1.32 – 2.78); p < zero.001), earlier AKI (OR = three.29; 95% CI, 1.11 – 9.29; p = zero.025), and former UTI (OR = 1.69; 95% CI, 1.24 – 2.24; p < zero.001) considerably elevated the chance of creating POUR. Components together with elevated physique mass index, coronary artery illness, congestive coronary heart failure, diabetes mellitus, continual obstructive pulmonary illness, tobacco use, and fusion had been discovered to be non-significant and had been excluded from the mannequin. With respect to problems, POUR was discovered to be related to improvement of UTI (OR = four.50; 95% CI, three.14 – 6.45; p < zero.001), sepsis (OR = four.05; 95% CI, 1.16 – 13.55; p = zero.022), elevated LOS (p < zero.001), elevated chance to be discharged to a talented nursing facility (OR of discharge to dwelling = zero.44; 95% CI, zero.32 – zero.62; p < zero.001), and elevated threat for readmission inside 90 days of the index surgical procedure (OR = 1.60; 95% CI, 1.11 – 2.26), p = zero.zero09). Growth of POUR didn’t enhance the chance of creating AKI (OR = 2.45; 95% CI, zero.93 – 6.30; p = zero.063) or a surgical website an infection (OR = 1.09; 95% CI, zero.56 – 2.02; p = zero.79).
CONCLUSIONS: Total, POUR was a big threat issue for the event of UTI, sepsis, elevated LOS, discharge to a talented nursing facility, and readmission inside 90 days. Surgeons and anesthesiologists ought to take preventative measures in opposition to POUR in people with elevated age, BPH, and AKI and UTI inside 90 days previous to surgical procedure, as these elements had been discovered to considerably enhance the chance of POUR.

Truly excellent results! I was diagnosed with lumbar stenosis after experiencing increasing pain in both legs. An MRI and consultation carried out at short notice confirmed this. Mr Akmal recommended that a spacer should be inserted in my lower back to correct the problem and release the nerves from the narrowing caused by stenosis. The operation was conducted very professionally and without pain. After the first two weeks the pain started to subside as expected. After 4 weeks I was completely back to normal. The result is exceptionally good and I feel renewed, with no pain whatsoever and a regained posture, ready to resume a normal life. I cannot recommend The London Spine Unit highly enough. They are medical magicians!

Sciatica My mother was in absolute agony for more than 3 months due to sciatica. It just came out of nowhere and took her out of action. From working full time she went straight to being bed bound and unable to carry out simplest of actions.The pain was 9/10 and she was bed bound for those three months. Multiple trips to A&E and GP and they wouldn't class it as an emergency therefore they wouldn't do anything about it other than upgrading the painkillers which did next to nothing for my mother. I couldn't bear to watch my mother sleeping on A&E bench in pain for 7 hours, just to be told by doctors that she wouldn't be kept in. I remember her joining her hands and begging the doctors to stop the pain which broke my heart. I then started doing research on google and London spine unit came up with Dr Mo AKMAL's profile and review. First meeting with Dr AKMAL was via ZOOM as my mother was bed bound. Dr AKMAL spoke to me and my mom and told us that this is nothing to worry about and that the pain would be 100% gone.Dr AKMAL assured us to visit the hospital so he could physically inspect my mother and give us the best solution. One trip to the london spine unit and Dr AKMAL advised us that the best solution would be to carry out Minimally invasive disectomy. Dr AKMAL advised that due to my mother being bed bound for a while, steroid injection might not give the result that my mother wishes. Dr AKMAL was very confident and showed us some videos from other patients who had gone through the same ordeal. The biggest thing i noticed between before and after was the smile on the patients face. Dr AKMAL was constantly assuring my mother throughout the meeting that he would take care of her pain and gave her 100% confidence that the result would be delivered.He promised her that she would be walking pain free the same day after the operation. Before the operation Dr GURUNG was consulted multiple times and he also was very helpful. Right after the surgery, as Dr AKMAL promised, my mother was walking and the biggest thing was that the pain was gone. My mother had forgotten to smile for three months and there i saw her smiling again. Dr AKMAL and Dr GURUNG gave us brilliant aftercare and informed us that just give them a ring if there was any issue. Its been several weeks now and my mother is heading towards complete recovery without any issues. The pain is completely gone and anyone who is reading this going through the same horrible sciatica pain you must come and see Dr AKMAL. Thank you Dr AKMAL and your whole team for helping my mom achieve this pain free life.

Extraordinary Care My 81 year old mother who has retired in Ghana was suffering from severe lower back pain so a local surgeon put her through discectomy with hardware (spine screws). The procedure was essentially botched, with one screw breaching her spinal canal resulting in extreme pain; unable to walk, pins and needles and numbness in the left leg. The hardware subsequently had become infected and loosened as a result. Her life after this surgery was the worse she has ever experienced in all her life. She had no doubt that she was eventually to die from the infection and pain. Fortunately, through diligent search, we found Mr Akmal and his team at The UK Spine Centre. She had a zoom consultation and with a ready MRI and CT scan, Mr Akmal knew exactly how to have her back to fitness and a better quality of life. She travelled to England on 26 March 2022 and had the surgery on 11 April 2022. It was a day-case. It lasted no more than 1 hour 30 minutes. She was on my feet within 2 hours pain free - still pain free 5 weeks on! To her this is simply a miracle ! She is grateful to Jehovah God for Mr Akmal and his team - thoroughly professional bunch at the top of their game. No one deserves to suffer the pain she experienced for two years. She seriously recommends Mr Akmal and his team for anything SPINE!

Bilateral discectomy and dynamic stabilisation for complete foot drop From the first phone call, the team at London Spine have been amazing. I had severe symptoms following an L4/L5 disc injury from playing sports and had complete foot drop. Mr Akmal and his team treated the situation incredibly sensitively, as I had risk of permanent damage. The whole process was so quick, from initial consultation to operation was about 96 hours. On the day of the operation, the nurses couldn’t have been more helpful, attentive and calming. The surgery was flawless, with absolutely zero pain from the operation following. I am now 8 weeks from a bi-lateral discectomy and dynamic stabilisation procedure and have regained full use of my leg and toes, with a complete range of motion also. Mr Akmal’s aftercare has been first class, with regular calls from his team in the 2 weeks following the surgery, to the final consultation and discharge. Thanks so much for giving me my life back
Excellent treatment Mr Mo Akmal treated me very successfully for 2 torn discs in my back. I was in tremendous pain before I was referred to him. The treatment I received from him was excellent and he communicated with me very well throughout the whole process. I am eternally grateful to Mr Akmal for sorting out my back and would highly recommend him.

I had a massive bulging disk on my back… I had a massive bulging disk on my back compressing my nerve for three years. It caused me excruciating pain and almost left me disabled. I was on both crutches and completely homebound due to the severity of pain and mobility limitations. I had my lumber surgery two weeks ago and walked out of hospital within a few hours pain free on my right leg that was almost paralysing prior to surgery. The disk was shaved off releasing the nerve completely. Two days after surgery I had excruciating pain on my head that is unexplained as I had CT scan and MRI which were all fine. Dr Akmal has suggested it could be from the anaesthetic. I am extremely grateful to Dr Akmal and his very welcoming and cari g team. I would highly recommend his clinic as I have had excellent recovery.
Thank you Mr Aklam After having a poor and very slow experiance in glasgow . I contacted Mr mo Amlam . Who is a true gentleman, great listener and paitent . We transfered my scans and treatments from glasgow to harley street . Mr Aklams p.a arranged a quick zoom to start our contact .I then went down for a meeting and examination and what should have been a spec scan .only to be told of a UK shortage . So 4 weeks later the scan took place in wellington hospital . Before I traveled back to glasgow. 5 days later I got a call to book me in to 19 harley street for a l3 and l4 debridement and stabilisation. The opp took place on 24th March. 2hours I was out walking 4 hours later . My pain in back groin and foot was all gone .thanks to Mr aklam . Top of his craft but more importantly pouts his patients first .he really wants to help you get better. Thank you so much Mr Robert harvey

Amazing service and an amazing treatment! I can't thank Mr Akmal and team at the London Spine Unit enough for their help. I had a herniated disc in my back which was causing pain and restrictions. Compared to other offers of surgery (e.g. several nights in hospital), the day surgery and minimally invasive procedure were hugely appealing. I am now 3 weeks post surgery, have no pain and am recovering incredibly quickly if I compare myself to friends who have had a similar procedure. it was truly remarkable, straightforward and the team were kind, friendly and always helpful. very highly recommended!
Great service and painless procedure Great service and painless procedure. Definitely alleviated the pain
