  1. Morbidity and mortality in association with operations on the lumbar spine : the influence of age, diagnosis, and procedure.

    Article - En anglais

    We examined the rates of postoperative complications and mortality, as recorded in a hospital discharge registry for the State of Washington for the years 1986 through 1988, for patients who had had an operation of the lumbar spine.

    When patients who had had a malignant lesion, infection, or fracture are excluded, there were 18,122 hospitalizations for procedures on the lumbar spine, 84 per cent of which involved a herniated disc of spinal stenosis.

    The rates of morbidity and mortality during hospitalization, as well at the hospital chages, increased with the ages of the patients.
