Psychological, mobility, and satisfaction variables mediate the relationship between baseline back pain intensity and long-term outcomes in individuals who underwent lumbar spine surgery
“In patients who receive spine surgery, pain is relational to disability and quality of life, but exactly how this influence is mediated is not fully understood.”
“This is an observational study on the measurement properties of the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) version 1.0.”
“Given the physiologic and physical strain that can be associated with spine surgery, it is important to optimize patients pre-operatively to improve outcomes and reduce the risk of post-operative complications.”
Is the probable spillage of the lung surfactant dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine the ultimate source of diabetes type 1?
“The lung surfactant dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC) most probably leaks into the blood, settling on the luminal aspect of blood vessels to create active hydrophobic spots (AHS).”
“This was a single-institution, retrospective study of quality improvement in the Department of Neurosurgery at Duke University Hospital.”
The Influence of Unemployment and Disability Status on Clinical Outcomes in Patients Receiving Surgery for Low Back-Related Disorders: An Observational Study
“Employment status plays an essential role as a social determinant of health.”
Quantifying the collective influence of social determinants of health using conditional and cluster modeling
“Our objective was to analyze the collective effect of social determinants of health (SDoH) on lumbar spine surgery outcomes utilizing two different statistical methods of combining variables.”
Effect of change in preoperative depression/anxiety on patient outcomes following lumbar spine surgery
“The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between positive change in depression or anxiety within three months post-operation and clinically meaningful changes in long-term clinical outcomes after lumbar spine surgery.”
Long-term impact of obesity on patient-reported outcomes and patient satisfaction after lumbar spine surgery: an observational study
“Obese body habitus is a challenging issue to address in lumbar spine surgery.”
