  • Surgery Better for Herniated Discs According to 8 Year Study
    pain sciatica and other symptoms caused by pressure on the spinal nerve roots The current analysis included eight year follow up data on 1 244 patients treated at 13 spine clinics across the United States About 500 patients were randomly assigned to surgery a procedure called discectomy or nonsurgical treatment although patients were allowed to cross over to the other treatment For the remaining patients decisions as to surgery or nonsurgical treatment were left up to the patients and their doctors Standard measures of pain physical functioning and disability were compared between groups Consistent with previous data from SPORT patients assigned to surgery tended to have better outcomes However because many patients did not actually undergo their assigned treatment the differences based on intention to treat were not statistically significant But Better Outcomes with Surgery Based on Actual Treatment When outcomes were compared for patients who actually underwent surgery versus nonsurgical treatment significant differences emerged On a 100 point pain scale pain scores averaged about 11 points lower in the surgery group Measures of physical functioning and disability showed similar differences Surgery also led to greater improvement in some additional outcomes including the bothersomeness of sciatica symptoms patient satisfaction and self rated improvement blog closed loop bloodless technique for some of jehovahs witnesses While average outcome scores were better with surgery many patients had significant improvement with nonsurgical treatment After eight years about one third of patients who were clinically indicated for surgery have chosen not to have operative treatment SPORT Principal Investigator Dr James N Weinstein said this is significant and shows the important role that shared decision making plays in the process Every patient in the SPORT study went through shared decision making during which they reviewed objective information about the risks and benefits of their treatment options This allowed them to make an informed choice in line with their own values That about a third of these patients have continued to be satisfied with their choice is in large part due I believe to their being active participants in the initial decision making process Weinstein said blog fyi bloodless spine surgery for jehovahs witnesses Lumbar disc surgery is one of the most commonly performed operations in the United States although rates vary considerably in different regions Past studies have suggested that surgery provides faster pain relief and recovery for patients with herniated discs compared to nonsurgical treatment However it has been difficult to determine the true effects of surgery especially because of the high number of patients who cross over from nonsurgical treatment to surgery This tends to underestimate the true benefits of surgery The long term follow up results from SPORT show that for patients with confirmed herniated lumbar discs S urgery was superior to non operative treatment in relieving symptoms and improving function Dr Lurie and coauthors note that the peak benefits are achieved within six months after surgery and persist through eight years Topics Spine Surgery Real Spine Surgery On the forefront of spinal
