Screening Patients Requiring Secondary Lumbar Surgery For Degenerative Lumbar Spine Diseases: A Nationwide Sample Cohort Study London Spine Lumbar Stenosis

This article discusses a study aimed at identifying healthcare cost indicators that can predict the need for secondary surgery in patients with degenerative lumbar spine disease (DLSD). The study analyzed data from the National Health Insurance Service-National Sample Cohort database in South Korea and included 3,881 patients who had surgery for various lumbar spine conditions. The patients were divided into two groups: those who underwent secondary surgery and those who did not. The study found that the group that underwent secondary surgery had higher costs for both the secondary surgery itself and the interim costs between surgeries. The findings suggest that monitoring interim costs after the initial surgery can help identify patients who may require secondary surgery

Abstract

This study aims to identify healthcare costs indicators predicting secondary surgery for degenerative lumbar spine disease (DLSD), which significantly impacts healthcare budgets. Analyzing data from the National Health Insurance Service-National Sample Cohort (NHIS-NSC) database of Republic of Korea (ROK), the study included 3881 patients who had surgery for lumbar disc herniation (LDH), lumbar spinal stenosis without spondylolisthesis (LSS without SPL), lumbar spinal stenosis with spondylolisthesis (LSS with SPL), and spondylolysis (SP) from 2006 to 2008. Patients were categorized into two groups: those undergoing secondary surgery (S-group) and those not (NS-group). Surgical and interim costs were compared, with S-group having higher secondary surgery costs ($1829.59 vs $1618.40 in NS-group, P = 0.002) and higher interim costs ($30.03; 1.86% of initial surgery costs vs $16.09; 0.99% of initial surgery costs in NS-group, P < 0.0001). The same trend was observed in LDH, LSS without SPL, and LSS with SPL (P < 0.0001). Monitoring interim costs trends post-initial surgery can effectively identify patients requiring secondary surgery.
