Crawford, John R., Izatt, Maree T., Adam, Clayton J., Labrom, Robert D., & Askin, Geoffrey N. (2006) A Prospective Assessment of SRS-24 Scores After Endoscopic Anterior Instrumentation for Scoliosis. Spine: an international journal for the study of the spine, 31(21), E817-E822.
Study Design. Prospective clinical case series Objective. To evaluate the clinical outcome of anterior endoscopic instrumentation for scoliosis using the SRS-24 questionnaire and to examine how these scores change over a 2 year follow-up period. Summary of Background Data. Anterior endoscopic instrumentation correction has several advantages compared with open procedures. However, the clinical results of this technique using a validated outcome measure have rarely been reported in the literature. Methods. A total of 83 consecutive patients underwent endoscopic anterior instrumentation performed at a single unit. Patients completed the SRS-24 questionnaire before surgery and at 3, 6, 12 and 24 months after surgery. The SRS-24 scores were compared between each of the follow-up intervals. Results. The pain, general self-image and function from back condition domains improved after surgery, (p<0.05). Activity level significantly improved between 3 and 6 months, and both function domains improved between 6 and 12 months (p<0.05). None of the domains increased significantly after 1 year. Conclusions. Endoscopic anterior instrumentation for scoliosis significantly improved pain, self-image and function. The greatest improvement in function occurred between 6 and 12 months after surgery. The SRS-24 scores at 1 year from surgery may provide a good indicator of patient outcome in the long-term.
