The perioperative complication rate for spinal fusion in Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) remains high and sometimes prolonged perioperative intensive care is needed.
We investigated preoperative and intraoperative risk factors associated with prolonged intensive care unit (ICU) stay after posterior spinal fusion.
We reviewed the records of 49 consecutive DMD patients who underwent posterior spinal fusion. Instrumentation was performed from T4 to L5 (46 cases) or to the ilium (3 cases).
We recorded the preoperative Cobb angle and perioperative clinical data from patient records.
Patients were divided into two groups (ICU stay 0 or 1 day, 2 days or longer).
Chi-square and t tests were used for univariate analysis. Factors with p < 0.05 in the univariate analysis were entered into a multilevel logistic regression analysis.
