NEPOMUCENO, Eliane et al. HEALTH-RELATED QUALITY OF LIFE AND EXPECTATIONS OF SPINAL STENOSIS PATIENTS TOWARDS THE SURGICAL TREATMENT. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2016, vol.25, n.3, e1080015.  Epub 12-Set-2016. ISSN 0104-0707.  https://doi.org/10.1590/0104-07072016001080015.

The objective of this cross-sectional analytical study was to compare health-related quality of life, presence of anxiety and depression symptoms, and functional limitation according to the location of the spinal stenosis; and to describe patients' expectations toward the surgical treatment. Thirty-two patients with lumbar stenosis and 22 with cervical stenosis participated in the study. Comparison of health-related quality of life showed statistically significant differences in pain and functional capacity dimensions. There were no statistically significant differences regarding anxiety and depression symptoms. The mean functional limitation was 53.2% (SD=11.9%) for the group with lumbar stenosis and 40.2% (SD=17.5%) for the group with cervical stenosis. Most participants expected great improvement of the symptoms after the surgical treatment. In the preoperative period, expectations of improvement are high and should be discussed with the health staff, since in clinical practice, this improvement is not always achieved with the surgical treatment.
