Clinical diagnostic rating (score) of the degree of lumbosacral degenerative lesion

, : Clinical diagnostic rating (score) of the degree of lumbosacral degenerative lesion. Vestnik Rentgenologii i Radiologii: 16-20

The study was undertaken to work out an objective rating scale in a patient with lumbosacral degenerative lesion to define its degree. From 2002 to 2007, the Spinal Surgery Department, Research Institute of Neurosurgery, Russian Academy of Medical Sciences, operated on 292 patients with degenerative lesions of the lumbosacral spine. The developed scale was used to analyze patients with umbosacral disk herniation (n = 194), vertebral canal stenosis (n = 57), spondylolisthesis (n = 23), and degenerative comorbidity (n = 18). A classification scheme of the degrees of lumbosacral degenerative lesion has been proposed on the basis of the developed multiobjective rating scale.
