STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data. OBJECTIVE: To examine the combined influence of preoperative sleep disturbance and depression on 12-month patient-reported outcomes after lumbar spine surgery (LSS). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Psychological and behavioral factors are considered major risk factors of poor outcome after LSS. However, there is a need to explore the combined effects of preoperative factors such as sleep disturbance and depression...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort. OBJECTIVE: To determine if performing a simultaneous laminectomy at an unfused level adjacent to an instrumented fusion increases the risk of adjacent segment disease(ASD). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Laminectomy adjacent to instrumented fusion has uncertain outcomes. The increased mechanical forces at the unfused laminectomy may lead to more ASD.

STUDY DESIGN: Clinical experimental diagnostic study. OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to investigate cervical spine dynamics including changes of the cervical foramina in patients experiencing intermittent arm radiculopathy. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Cervical foraminal stenosis is a frequent cause of radicular arm pain. The Spurling test, while specific, lacks the precision to identify symptomatic nerve roots. The relationship between vertebral motion, foraminal changes, and radiculopathy during a Spurling test remains underexplored...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective Single-Center Study. OBJECTIVE: To assess the influence of frailty on optimal outcome following ASD corrective surgery. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Frailty is a determining factor in outcomes after ASD surgery and may exert a ceiling effect on best possible outcome. METHODS: ASD patients with frailty measures, baseline and 2-year ODI included. Frailty was classified as Not Frail (NF), Frail (F) and Severely Frail (SF) based on the modified Frailty Index, then stratified into quartiles based on 2-year ODI improvement (most improved designated "Highest")...

STUDY DESIGN: Meta-Analysis. OBJECTIVE: This meta-analysis aims to compare same-day versus staged spine surgery, assessing their effects on patient care and healthcare system efficiency. BACKGROUND: In spinal surgery, the debate between whether same-day and staged surgeries are better for patients continues, as the decision may impact patient related outcomes, healthcare resources and overall costs. While some surgeons advocate for staged surgeries citing reduced risks of complications, others proclaim same-day surgeries may minimize costs and length of hospital stays...
