Title Guidelines for the performance of fusion procedures for degenerative disease of the lumbar spine. Part 5: correlation between radiographic and functional outcome
Date 2005
Description Standards. There is insufficient evidence to recommend a treatment standard. Guidelines. There is insufficient evidence to recommend a treatment guideline. Options. It is recommended that when performing lumbar arthrodesis for degenerative lumbar disease, strategies to achieve successful radiographic fusion should be considered. There appears to be a correlation between successful fusion and improved clinical outcomes; however, it should be noted that the correlation between fusion status and clinical outcome is not strong, and in a given patient fusion status may be unrelated to clinical outcome. between fusion status and clinical outcome after lumbar arthrodesis procedures performed in the treatment of lumbar spinal degenerative disease.
