STUDY DESIGN: Observational study OBJECTIVE.: To evaluate the online ratings of spine surgeons and variables that may affect online ratings. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Physician review websites (PRW) are rapidly growing for-profit businesses. Most Orthopaedic surgeons are rated on at least one PRW as are other surgical specialists. To date the online ratings of spine surgeons have not been evaluated. METHODS: Cervical Spine Research Society (CSRS) surgeon ratings on 5 physician rating websites were performed in April 2016: 'healthgrade...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective comparative study. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to compare functional outcomes, hospital resource utilization, and spine-related costs during 2 years in patients who had undergone primary or revision surgery for adult spinal deformity (ASD). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: After surgery for ASD, patients may require revision for pseudarthrosis, implant complications, or deformity progression. Data evaluating cost-effectiveness of primary and, in particular, revision surgery, for ASD are sparse...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective review of radiographic data and functional outcomes. OBJECTIVE: Evaluate whether myelopathy symptom severity upon presentation corresponds to sagittal plane alignment or non-myelopathy symptoms, such as pain, in patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Cervical sagittal balance is an important parameter in the outcome of surgical reconstruction. However, the effect of sagittal alignment on symptom severity in patients who have not undergone spine surgery is not well defined...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the risk of acute cholecystitis (AC) in patients with spinal cord injury (SCI) based on a nationwide sample. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Prior research evaluating the risk of AC in patients with SCI is limited. Moreover, since most previous studies on the association between AC and SCI used case-series designs, little is known about the relative risk of SCI patients developing AC from a longitudinal follow-up, compared with individuals without SCI...

STUDY DESIGN: A cross-sectional comparison of vertebral morphology and lumbar lordosis (LL) in adolescents with and without spondylolysis. OBJECTIVE: To test the hypothesis that in addition to LL, vertebral cross-sectional area (CSA) is also associated with spondylolysis. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Recent data indicates that the CSA of the vertebral body is a determinant of LL, which has been shown to be associated with spondylolysis. METHODS: Using magnetic resonance imaging, we compared the degree of LL from L1 to L5 and the CSA of the lumbar vertebrae in 35 adolescents (16 females and 19 males) with spondylolysis and 86 healthy controls (36 females and 50 males) of similar sex, age, height, and weight...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study of a nationwide database OBJECTIVE.: The primary objective was to summarize the use of surgical methods for lumbar herniated intervertebral disc disease (HIVD) at two different time periods under the national health insurance system (NHIS). The secondary objective was to perform a cost-effectiveness analysis by utilizing incremental cost-effectiveness ratio (ICER). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: The selection of surgical method for HIVD may or may not be consistent with cost effectiveness under NHIS, but this issue has rarely been analyzed...
