Årsrapport 2021: Nasjonalt kvalitetsregister for ryggkirurgi, resultater og forbedringstiltak
The Norwegian Registry for Spine Surgery (NORspine) was established in 2007 and extended to include both lumbar and cervical operations in 2012. The registry aims to improve the quality of surgical treatment for degenerative spine conditions. It measures patient reported outcomes (PROM) and experiences (PREM) with validated outcome scales. The actuality, correctness, reliability, completeness and comparability of the data has been validated and is good. Research projects have validated cut-offs for outcomes after lumbar spine surgery. This work is ongoing for cervical surgery.
