Enhanced Recovery After Spine Surgery

2016-11-01 07:23:21 | BioPortfolio


Enhanced recovery after surgery (ERAS) pathways have been shown to decrease length of stay and perioperative complications in a range of surgical specialties. To date, ERAS has not been studied in patients presenting for spine surgery. The investigators have recently developed an interdisciplinary pathway for spine surgery patients based on the latest available evidence and guidelines. The aim of this trial is to compare the investigators ERAS pathway with conventional perioperative management in patients undergoing 1-2 level posterior lumbar fusion.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The specialty or practice of nursing in the care of patients in the recovery room following surgery and/or anesthesia.

An occupational discipline founded by D.D. Palmer in the 1890's based on the relationship of the spine to health and disease. The spine is analyzed by X-rays and palpation, and vertebrae are adjusted manually to relieve pressures on the spinal cord. OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE was originally similar but has become more like FAMILY PRACTICE.

Blood-coagulation factor VIII. Antihemophilic factor that is part of the factor VIII/von Willebrand factor complex. Factor VIII is produced in the liver and acts in the intrinsic pathway of blood coagulation. It serves as a cofactor in factor X activation and this action is markedly enhanced by small amounts of thrombin.

A degenerative joint disease involving the SPINE. It is characterized by progressive deterioration of the spinal articular cartilage (CARTILAGE, ARTICULAR), usually with hardening of the subchondral bone and outgrowth of bone spurs (OSTEOPHYTE).

The system of all phenomena in space and time; the totality of physical reality. It is both a scientific and philosophic concept appearing in all historic eras. (Webster 2d; Dr. James H. Cassedy, NLM History of Medicine Division)
