Health-Related Quality of Life & Functioning in Patients With Spinal Fusion

The objective of this study was to assess disability, Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQoL) and health utility in patients undergoing spinal fusion surgery. Since 2008 all patients undergoing non-urgent spinal fusion in Tampere University Hospital and Jyväskylä Central Hospital have been invited to the spinal database. Patients’ data were collected prospectively, prior to surgery and at three months, one year and two years postoperatively and there are different follow-up periods in sub-studies. A general population sample was also drawn and matched for age, gender and residential area for purposes of comparison with the fusion patients.
