The aim: to investigate the outcomes of surgical treatment of patients with rigid posttraumatic deformities in thoracic and lumbar spine on the basis of the comparative analysis of different approaches to the planning of operative intervention management. Material and Methods. A comparative analysis of the results of surgical treatment of 138 patients (main group) with old injuries of thoracic and lumbar spine was carried out with the help of the proposed surgery managing algorithm and 86 patients (comparison group) — without taking the given algorithm into account. The choice of surgery managing in the main group of patients was based on the study of the spinal deformity degree, pain syndrome intensity and life quality indices of patients before and after surgery. Results. In the main group in 122 (88,4%) patients after the surgery spinal deformity correction exceeding 80% was achieved, pain syndrome regressed in accordance with the visual analog scale up to 3 points and less, life quality indices improved up to the level of 0-25%. Conclusion. The application of the proposed algorithm approach enables surgeons to get persistent positive outcomes in the majority of cases.
