Body mass index has an impact on preoperative symptoms but not clinical outcome in acute cauda equina syndrome

We did a retrospective case-control study of all patients treated operatively for severe total and insufficient CES in our neurosurgical division from 2009 to 2020, concentrating on the preoperative BMI and postoperative neurological end result. Fifty patients with CES were included, of whom 96% dealt with a decompensated lumbar spinal stenosis or disc prolapse between the L4/5 and L5/S1 levels. Our friend population was not obese however overweight: suggest BMI was 27. 5 kg/m2, compared to 27. 6 kg/m2 in patients with degenerative spinal column surgical treatment. We offer an extensive literature testimonial on the current proof regarding CES and obesity and end that we did not observe an association in between obesity and CES occurrence. Patients with CES and various other degenerative spinal pathologies belong to a not obese however overweight population. Body Mass Index has an impact on preoperative signs yet not professional outcome in intense CES.
