Abstract

Background Context: Adult spinal deformity (ASD) patients may gain minimal clinically important difference (MCID) in one or more of the health-related quality-of-life instruments without surgical intervention. The present study identifies the baseline characteristics of this subset of non-operative patients and proposes predictors of those most likely to benefit. Purpose: The study aims to determine the factors that affect likelihood of non-operative patients to reach MCID. Study Design/Setting: This is a retrospective review of a prospective, multicenter database. Patient Sample: The study includes non-operative ASD patients. Outcome Measures: Health-related quality-of-life measures, including the Scoliosis Research Society (SRS)-22 questionnaire, were used. Methods: The study used a multicenter database of 215 non-operative patients with ASD and with minimum 2-year follow-up. Using a multivariate analysis, two groups were compared to identify possible predictors: those who reached MCID in the SRS pain or activity (N=86) at 2 years and those who did not reach MCID (N=129). A subgroup multivariate analysis of patients with a deficit (potential improvement) in both SRS pain and activity (N=84) was performed. Data collection was supported by a grant from DePuy for the International Spine Study Group Foundation. Results: At baseline, the non-operative patients who reached MCID had a significantly lower SRS pain score (3.0 vs. 3.6), smaller thoracolumbar Cobb (TL Cobb) angle (29.6° vs. 36.5°; 87 patients with SRS-Schwab classification of lumbar or double), lower sacral slope (33.1° vs. 36.4°), and less lumbar lordosis (46.5° vs. 52.8°) (all p
