    percentage of 1st Scoliosis surgery rlater require revision?

    As Iím looking at my 1st Scoliosis surgery & Reading about so many revision threads makes you think about your future. I know its a crap shoot but thereís gotta be research out about this. If anyone knows please share sources. Thanks Nancy

    Most of us do well with scoliosis surgery. If there was no improvement, they wouldn't be fusing people for over a century. Most get done, come out ok, and don't post anymore, or pop in every once in a blue moon. Here is a happy I had surgery thread....

    Go into the Surgical first time threads and glance at Linda's sticky threads up at the top. The top 5 are slightly shaded.

    Linda had posted studies with percentages in the past. They are here....(someplace) If you have trouble finding these, I will dig for you.

    If you're talking about patients who had scoliosis surgery as adults, no one has really done anything with enough follow-up. I believe you'd need at least 30-40 years to get a meaningful number. There is one study that showed a revision rate of 20% at 10 years. I'm guessing that with 30+ years of follow-up, there's probably a 25%+ revision rate. There are so many factors that come into play (age at first surgery, skill of surgeon, type of surgery, comorbidies, etc.), that I'm not sure that number is really helpful.
