Measuring Outcomes in Spinal Deformity Surgery.

Outcome assessment in adult spinal deformity has evolved from radiographic analysis of curve correction to patient-centered perception of health-related quality-of-life. Oswestry Disability Index and the Scoliosis Research Society-22 Patient Questionnaire are the predominantly used patient-reported outcome (PRO) measurements for deformity surgery. Correction of sagittal alignment correlates with improved PRO. Functional outcomes and accelerometer measurements represent newer methods of measuring outcomes but have not yet been widely adopted or validated. Further adoption of a minimum set of core outcome domains will help facilitate international comparisons and benchmarking, and ultimately enhance value-based healthcare.
