Abstract

Background: Adolescent idiopathic scoliosis is the most common form of scoliosis. However, there is a little information exists about the patient satisfaction who underwent the surgery of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Most of the surgeons rely on the radiographic parameters as an index of successful outcome of surgery. This study was designed to evaluate the patient’s satisfaction after the surgery of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Methods: A cross sectional study using SRS 30 questionnaire was performed to prospectively assess the outcome of surgically treated patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Data were collected before surgery and 24 months after surgery. Findings: A total of 43 patients were included in our study. The mean satisfaction score was 2.7 ± 0.3 before the operation and 4.2 ± 0.2 after the surgery (P < 0.01). General self image, psychiatric state and function and activity level, showed the significant improvement after the surgery (P < 0.01). Pain was not a major complaint in our patients. Overall 95 percent of the patients were highly satisfied and 5 percent were partially satisfied. Conclusion: Surgery will improve outcome in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients and it could improve patient satisfaction and well being in addition to the deformity correction. © 2009, Isfahan University of Medical Sciences(IUMS).
