The Relationship Between Preoperative Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) Pain Interference and Pain Intensity Scores and Early Postoperative Pain and Opioid Consumption After Lumbar Fusion – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

The article discusses a study that aimed to assess differences in Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) pain interference and pain intensity measures and evaluate whether baseline PROMIS pain scores could predict increased pain and opioid consumption in patients undergoing lumbar fusion surgery. The study found that patients with high pain intensity reported higher levels of pain and required more opioids during the first 24 hours postoperatively, while those with high pain interference reported higher levels of pain on the day of surgery but utilized similar amounts of opioids. After adjusting for risk factors, increased baseline PROMIS pain interference scores were associated with increased opioid use. The study suggests that both pain intensity and pain interference should be considered when identifying patients at risk for increased pain and opioid consumption after lumbar fusion surgery

ABSTRACT

Background The Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) pain interference and pain intensity measures quantify separate dimensions of pain from the patient’s perspective. This study aimed to assess differences in these outcomes and to evaluate whether baseline PROMIS pain scores could be used as a leading indicator of increased pain and opioid consumption during early recovery after lumbar fusion. Methods A retrospective review of 199 consecutive patients undergoing posterolateral fusion (PLF) at a single institution was performed. All patients underwent one to three level lumbar PLF and preoperatively completed the PROMIS pain intensity and PROMIS pain interference measures. Multivariate linear regression was used to assess the relationship between preoperative PROMIS scores and postoperative pain numeric rating scale (NRS) and oral morphine milligram equivalents (OMME) by day after controlling for age, sex, and body mass index (BMI). Results In comparison to patients with the lowest preoperative pain intensity scores, those with the highest scores required significantly more OMME on postoperative day (POD) zero and one (both p<0.05) and had higher pain NRS on POD one (p=0.02). Patients with the highest pain interference scores reported higher pain NRS on POD zero (p=0.02) but required similar OMME at all time points. After controlling for age, sex, and BMI, each one-point increase in preoperative PROMIS pain interference scores was associated with increased OMME on POD zero (β=0.29, p=0.04) and POD one (β=0.64, p=0.03). s Patients with high pain intensity reported higher levels of pain and required more opioids during the first 24 hours postoperatively, while those with high pain interference reported higher levels of pain on the day of surgery but utilized similar amounts of opioids. After risk adjustment, increased baseline PROMIS pain interference scores - but not pain intensity - were associated with increased opioid use. These results suggest that both measures should be considered when identifying patients at risk for increased pain and opioid consumption after PLF.
