Minor Trauma, New MRI Changes and Serious Low Back Illness? Eugene J. Carragee, MD Professor, Department of Orthopedic Surgery Stanford University School of Medicine

Slide 2

What Causes Serious Low Back Pain Illness and Disability? 500 BC Rheumatic Back Pain 1900\'s Traumatic Back Pain

Slide 3

Definite Causes of LBP: Serious Disease (Fracture, Tumor, Infection, and so on)

Slide 4

Possible Causes: Specific auxiliary injury Disk, anulus Facet Endplate Social connection (remuneration, and so on) Neurophysiologic Abn (Central torment/sensistivity) Psychological/Emotional Reserves Minor Trauma Combinations ?

Slide 5

Most much of the time embroiled: Minor injury and previous DDD +

Slide 6

Minor Trauma and DDD Questions??? Does minor injury cause genuine damage to declined circles (anular tear?) Do people with DDD + minor injury have a more serious danger of genuine LBP disease than without minor injury? (Is a LBP occasion going to happen at any rate… paying little respect to injury) No study has tentatively taken a gander at minor injury occasions in subjects with reported MRI DDD without genuine LBP.

Slide 7

Stanford LBP Cohort Study Objective To evaluate whether the event of regular minor injury occasions influences the danger of creating genuine LBP and LBP handicap in subjects with and without degenerative changes to the lumbar spine. Essential Hypothesis Minor injury is an autonomous danger element of ensuing handicapping LBP scenes among people without LBP histories however with known danger variables for degenerative circle illness. Optional Hypothesis within the sight of minor injury, the impacts of mental and auxiliary variables are not autonomous danger components of ensuing crippling LBP.

Slide 8

Study Design and Population Study Design Five-year forthcoming associate study with appraisals by blinded examination collaborator at regular intervals. Study Population Working subjects with known danger components for degenerative lumbar plate sickness yet without histories of clinically imperative LBP scenes. Examining Stratification proportion of 1:1 with and without interminable non-lumbar agony on a back to back case premise.

Slide 9

Eligibility Criteria Inclusion Criteria History of cervical plate sickness No history of LBP bringing about practical misfortune, work-misfortune days, or restorative treatment <2/10 on Numeric Rating Scale for LBP (x 2 more than 6 mo.) <16 on Modified Oswestry Low Back Disability Index Exclusion Criteria Serious basic spinal variations from the norm (spondy, fx, tumor) Inability to experience MRI filtering Working under 20 hours for every week

Slide 10

Measurement Tools Modified Oswestry Low Back Disability Index 0 to 10 Numeric Rating Scale for LBP Structured history and physical examination Plain radiographs* Lumbar spine MRI* Modified Zung Depression Scale* Modified Somatic Pain Questionnaire* Distress and Risk Assessment Method *Graded by analysts blinded to history and examination discoveries.

Slide 11

Follow-up Assessments Scripted phone meet at regular intervals directed by examination aide blinded to patient gauge information: Question: "Have you had any kind of damage to your low back in the most recent six months including scenes, for example, "wounds" happening amid games, lifting, bowing, turning, or slipping or minor falls?" Algorithm of further inquiries Standardized surveys (ODI, VAS, work hx, and so forth)

Slide 12

Scripted take after on inquiries Q 6 months If positive for minor LBP injury: Fall Standing to ground <1 meter - > ground <2 meter - > ground >2 meter MVA < 10 mph 10-20 mph and so on Sports Injury/Collision Lifting/curving harm (weight included) Other

Slide 13

Definitions of Trauma Back Pain after Major Trauma LBP scenes connected with high-vitality injury bringing about genuine instinctive damage, proximal long bone, pelvic or spinal break or separation . Back Pain after Minor Trauma Perceived harm to the low-back territory with an agony power >2/10 for no less than 48 hours yet not meeting the significant injury definition. Incorporates wounds happening amid lifting, sports, street auto collisions, or slipping or minor falls. Back Pain with No Trauma Activities of every day living, or guileful or unconstrained LBP

Slide 14

Outcome Measures Primary results " Serious back torment scenes " with a 0-10 NRS torment force >5 for no less than one week Disability from common occupation because of LBP inconveniences Secondary results Disability term of 1 month or less Disability span more noteworthy than 1 month Medical visits principally for LBP assessment and treatment, and surgical mediation MRI changes in subjects with genuine LBP occasions or handicap when required over the span of therapeutic evaluation

Slide 15

Statistical Methods Descriptive insights Incidence of LBP occasions as indicated by injury status: No injury Minor injury Major injury Logistic relapse used to gauge impacts of: Minor injury versus no minor injury on antagonistic LBP occasions Possible clinical/basic indicators of unfriendly LBP occasions Variables in beginning expectation models: Trauma status, age, sex, endless non-LB torment, past remuneration debate, smoking status, mental misery, circle degeneration evaluation, and nearness of anular disturbance, channel stenosis and end-plate changes Selected variables consolidated to gauge joint impacts

Slide 25

Prediction Model: Full Cohort Serious LBP occasion outcome* Joint impact of smoking and mental trouble : Odds Ratio = 3.97, 95% CI = 2.19 – 7.22 ( p < 0.004) Correctly recognized 72/118 (61%) genuine LBP occasions Joint impact of smoking, mental misery, and history of questioned pay claim : Odds Ratio = 10.6, 95% CI = 6.6 – 12.8 ( p < 0.0001) Correctly distinguished 94/118 (80%) genuine LBP occasions Disability outcome* Joint impact of mental pain and history of questioned pay claim: Odds Ratio = 8.34, 95% CI = 4.31 – 16.16 ( p < 0.0001) Correctly distinguished 41/44 (93%) inability occasions *All gauges balanced for age, sex, and constant non-lumbar agony status; minor injury did not add to the models.

Slide 26

Prediction Model: Wellness Effect Serious LBP occasion after minor trauma* Joint impact of no mental trouble and no history of questioned pay claim: Odds Ratio = 0.26, 95% CI = 0.06 – 0.49 ( p = 0.02) Serious LBP occasion with no trauma* Joint impact of no mental misery and no history of debated pay claim: Odds Ratio = 0.30, 95% CI = 0.10 – 0.90 ( p = 0.04) Disability after minor trauma* Joint impact of no mental pain and no history of questioned remuneration claim: Odds Ratio = 0.014, 95% CI = 0.04 – 0.97 ( p = 0.05) *All gauges balanced for age and sex.

Slide 27

Prediction Model: Spinal Arthritis Effect No Baseline Comorbid Pain, No Psychological Distress, No Disputed Compensation Claim Serious LBP event* Joint impact of moderate to extreme end-plate changes and waterway stenosis: Odds Ratio = 2.88, 95% CI = 1.06 – 5.67 ( p = 0.04) *Estimate balanced for age and sex.

Slide 28

New MR Performed for LBP 51 subjects (67 checks) more than 5 years New MR more basic if benchmark: Abnormal psychometrics (DRAM) OR 2.27, (95% CI 1.15 - 4.49) Non-lumbar interminable torment OR 3.19, (95% CI 1.61 - 6.32) Hx questioned comp claim OR 2.35 (95% CI 0.97 - 6.69) Multiple MR seen principally with Compensation Cases 15 of 16 subjects with 2 new MR\'s Mean 2.2 years (+/ - 0.82) after pattern Reason for exam 3 essential leg torment; 21 blended leg/back; 43 essential LBP

Slide 29

Results - Baseline versus New Total- - 2 new annular gaps 3 new circle protr/ext 2 new endplate changes

Slide 30

Were new discoveries more regular after reported "harm" contrasted with unconstrained LBP scenes?

Slide 31

Clearly Significant Findings in Two Subjects BOTH gave essential leg torment 1 - Large Disk Extrusion, with root pressure, no trauma,no comp issues 1 - new Gr I spondy, expanded stenosis and root pressure, no injury, no comp issues. Alternately: Presence of a remuneration claim corresponded with a nonappearance of new discoveries. (On the other hand 0.6)

Slide 32

New MRI Finds Findings fundamentally the same as others (Borenstein, Boos and Jarvik) when MR done at altered interims. Rehash MRI after LBP scene is like irregular MR testing. HOWEVER in clinical practice, large portions of the benchmark discoveries would likely be credited to an intense occasion. Truth be told shot of any finding being new or dynamic was low. Anular crevice (1:12) Disk Protrusion/Extrusion (1:15) DDD Grade 3-5 (1:9) Endplate Signal Changes (1:12)

Slide 33

Discussion Minor injury is extremely normal .7 minor injury w/LBP occasions per individual every year Minor injury has no autonomous relationship with movement to genuine LBP or handicap Baseline psychosocial variables are emphatically prescient of consequent genuine LBP and incapacity Structural variables (MRI and discography) have: feeble relationship with ensuing back agony scenes no relationship with inability or future medicinal consideration
