Abstract

DEBS, LIZANDRA GAGLIARDI KALIL et al. THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE MOST USED TECHNIQUES IN PATIENTS WITH DEGENERATIVE CERVICAL DISEASE. Coluna/Columna [online]. 2020, vol.19, n.1, pp.52-57.  Epub Mar 16, 2020. ISSN 2177-014X.  https://doi.org/10.1590/s1808-185120201901222701.

The objective of this study was to discuss the three main surgical techniques currently applied in the treatment of degenerative cervical discopathy and their repercussions on patient quality of life. We considered the impact of the surgical techniques applied to the quality of life of 24 patients who underwent surgery during the period from 2010 to 2017 using the Oswestry and SF-36 scales. With the application of the questionnaires we observed, through the applicability and analysis of the quality of life results indicated in the questionnaires, that pain improvement and a reduction in work and daily activity disability were more effective with cervical arthroplasty. We concluded that with the individualization of surgical treatment, that is, through the choice of the surgical technique most appropriate for the clinical condition, the postoperative recovery and consequently the quality of life of the patient are enhanced. Level of evidence IV; Descriptive study.
