Study Description

SLIP II Registry: Spinal Laminectomy Versus Instrumented Pedicle Screw Fusion

The purpose of this registry is two fold. First, to determine the comparative effectiveness of decompression alone versus decompression with fusion for patients with degenerative grade I spondylolisthesis and symptomatic lumbar spinal stenosis. Primary analysis will focus on the patients' improvement from baseline patient-reported outcome questionnaires. The registry will also determine if an expert panel review of individual patient cases (degenerative grade I spondylolisthesis/stenosis) is associated with improved outcome and patient satisfaction. This study aims to prospectively collect comparative data for these patients treated with either decompression alone or decompression with fusion.

Expert Panel Review

There is some preliminary evidence suggesting that having a group of spinal experts review x-rays prior to treatment might provide useful information to the patient and the patients' treating physician when trying to make a decision about what type of surgery to perform.
