Neurosurgery Quality and Outcomes Database (N 2 QOD), which has modules in cervical spine and lumbar spine deformity, as well as the North American Spine Society (NASS) Spine Registry ( https://www.spine.org/Pages/ResearchClinicalCare/Research/SpineRegistry.aspx ). 1 All registry efforts have focused on creating a low-cost and accessible platform for prospective data collection. The average follow-up rate in NeuroPoint-SD was 86% at 3 months and 80% at 1 year. Obtaining such high rates of follow-up in NeuroPoint-SD required significant resource commitment from all

site. Complications included all major adverse events (death, myocardial infarction, pulmonary embolus, infection, CSF leakage, new neurological deficit [for example, foot drop], readmission, and repeat operation). Delayed complications (repeat operation, fusion complications, problems with instrumentation, deformity) were recorded at 1 year. Surgical Treatment All patients underwent surgery at the discretion of the surgeon and the patient. Lumbar discectomy was performed as described. 32 Decompression and instrumented pedicle screw lumbar spinal fixation and

written permission from JNSPG. 2017 Introduction: Thoracolumbar burst fractures (TLBF) in neurologically intact patients can be treated non-operatively with an orthosis. This study aims to determine the radiological predictors of progressive kyphosis after TLBF in patients managed with a thoracolumbarsacral orthosis and to correlate clinical outcomes with severity and progression of kyphotic deformity. Methods: We retrospectively identified patients who during 2008–2012 sustained a thoracolumbar burst fractures and managed non-operatively using an
