Could a pre-operative bilateral SIJ injection for lumbar fusion candidates be a diagnostic tool to identify SIJ pain patients?

Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) pain, an elusive generator of lower back pain (LBP), affects 10-30% of lumbar patients with nonradicular pain. However, there is no diagnostic indicator that can be used as a reliable tool to screen SIJ pain. This prospective study uses a pre-operative bilateral injection, targeting a goal to develop a diagnostic tool to screen the incidence of SIJ problems. Expected outcome(s) is this procedure... more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Does sacroiliac fixation in multi-level spinal fusion surgery increase the incidence of post-operative sacroiliac joint pain?

Sacroiliac fixation for long construct adult scoliosis decreases instrumentation failure, reduces sacral stress fractures, and improves fusion rates however, there is a potential increase of postoperative sacroiliac joint (SIJ) complications leading to continued vague pain with patients. This is a prospective study to long term track patients with multi-level fusions (T10-pelvis) and sacroiliac fixation. We will evaluate... more »
