Evaluation of the efficiency of simultaneous rigid fixing and interspinous stabilization in patients with degenerative diseases of the lumbar spine

Summary:

Purpose: to assess the effectiveness of simultaneous rigid fixation and interspinous stabilization in patients with degenerative diseases of the lumbar spine. Material and Methods. The study included 216 patients with degenerative diseases of the lumbar spine, who in 109 cases underwent isolated rigid fixation, and in 107 cases, additional simultaneous interspecific stabilization. Results. When compared with the group of isolated rigid fixation, when conducting an additional simultaneous interspinous stabilization of the adjacent segment, lower indices of the level of pain syndrome and better functional status were noted. The total number of postoperative complications in the first group is 17.4%, in the second 5.6% (p=0.02). According to the instrumental data, a statistically significantly lower degeneration of the adjacent segment in group II (p<0.001) was noted, while in 11 group I patients additional decompression-stabilizing interventions at the adjacent level were performed. Conclusion. Simultaneous rigid fixation with the installation of an interspinous stabilizer at an adjacent level in the treatment of patients with degenerative diseases of the lumbar spine can significantly reduce the level of pain, improve functional status and also protect the adjacent segment from the progression of the degenerative process in it and reduce the number of repeated surgical interventions.
