Utility of preoperative comorbidity burden on PROMIS outcomes after lumbar decompression: Cohort matched analysis – Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

This article examines the impact of Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) burden on Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) outcomes following lumbar decompression surgery. The study included a retrospective review of elective lumbar decompression surgeries and collected preoperative and postoperative PROMIS scores up to 2 years. The patients were divided into two groups based on their CCI score. The results showed that there were no significant differences in PROMIS scores between the two groups. However, at 6 weeks, the lower CCI group had improved physical function scores, and at the final follow-up, they reported less anxiety. The study suggests that comorbidity burden has a limited effect on PROMIS outcomes in patients undergoing lumbar decompression surgery

ABSTRACT

The influence of Charlson Comorbidity Index (CCI) burden on Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS) outcomes following lumbar decompression (LD) is limited. The objective of this study is to evaluate CCI burden impact on PROMIS outcomes. Retrospective review of elective LD excluding revision or surgeries for infectious, malignant, or traumatic reasons. Demographics and PROMIS scores collected preoperatively and postoperatively up to 2 years included: PROMIS-Physical Function (PF)/Sleep Disturbance (SD)/Pain Interference (PI)/Anxiety (A), VR-12 Physical/Mental Health Composite scores (VR-12 PCS/MCS)/Oswestry Disability Index (ODI). Patients were divided into two groups based on their preoperative CCI score <3 (mild) or ≥4 (moderate to severe). Descriptive statistical analysis and MCID achievement rate calculations were conducted. A total of 182 patients were included: 93 CCI < 3 and 88 CCI ≥ 4. No significant differences were reported across preoperative PROMIS/legacy PROMs or final follow-up (p > 0.05, all). At 6-weeks, VR-12 PCS and ΔPROM scores indicated improved physician function in the CCI < 3 group (p = 0.020 and p = 0.040, respectively). Significant PROMIS-A ΔPROM score at final post-op was noted for CCI < 3 group (p = 0.026). MCID achievement demonstrated no significant differences for PROMIS outcomes and legacy PROMs. Results demonstrated that PROMIS outcomes were not impacted by a greater baseline comorbidity burden. At 6-weeks, the physical function scores were improved for the lower CCI group, and at final reported less anxiety. Our data suggests that comorbidity burden has a limited effect on PROMIS and legacy outcomes in patients undergoing LD.
