Trial of Protein Supplement on Vertebral Fusion in Posterior Spine Fusion Surgery

2019-09-23 04:51:50 | BioPortfolio


Receiving protein can affect the bone formation and maintenance by providing a structural matrix of the bone, optimizing the level of IGF-1, increasing intestinal calcium absorption, transferring phosphorous, and improving muscle strength.Therefore, protein may be effective on vertebral fusion by such mechanisms. In this trial patients undergoing elective posterior spine fusion surgery are divided into two groups of intervention or control.


A randomized, double blind, controlled trial will be conducted in patients undergoing elective posterior spine fusion surgery in Tehran, Iran. After a full review of the inclusion and exclusion criteria and explanation of the risks and benefits of the study, written consent form will be completed. The participants are 60 eligible posterior spine fusion surgery patients, aged ≥ 18 years. Intervention patients will be received 36 grams of protein supplement along with diet containing 1.2 g/kg/day of protein for 30 days after surgery and control patients will be received maltodextrin along with diet containing 1.2 g/kg/day of protein 30 days after surgery. Patients will be evaluated for occurrence of vertebral fusion and enhanced recovery after 3 months surgery.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A genus of filamentous CYANOBACTERIA found in most lakes and ponds. It has been used as a nutritional supplement particularly due to its high protein content.

Used as feed supplement for sheep and cattle since it is a good non-protein nitrogen source. In strongly alkaline solution biuret gives a violet color with copper sulfate.

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.

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).

Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
