Postoperative ileus (POI) after lumbar spine surgery is not uncommon. However, the incidence, severity and risk factors of ileus after spine surgery remain uncertain because there is not yet a prospective investigation using a subjective grading evaluation tool.
This study aims to prospectively investigate the incidence of POI after spine surgery by using two subjective grading systems, namely AGI grade as well as IFEED scoring system. The severity of POI after spine surgery thus could be stratified and then an investigation of possible risk factors could be identified. In addition, we will also investigate potential serum relevant biomarkers such as fatty acid-binding protein (i-FABP) , D-lactate (D-la), and lipopolysaccharide.

A condition caused by the lack of intestinal PERISTALSIS or INTESTINAL MOTILITY without any mechanical obstruction. This interference of the flow of INTESTINAL CONTENTS often leads to INTESTINAL OBSTRUCTION. Ileus may be classified into postoperative, inflammatory, metabolic, neurogenic, and drug-induced.
Pathologic processes that affect patients after a surgical procedure. They may or may not be related to the disease for which the surgery was done, and they may or may not be direct results of the surgery.
