patients with LSS resistant to conservative therapy, lumbar spinal surgery commonly attains favorable outcomes. 19 , 20 Knee osteoarthritis (KOA) is a degenerative joint condition 3 that limits mobility due to knee pain and limited knee range of motion (ROM). Because LSS and KOA are age-related degenerative changes, many elderly patients develop both pathologies concurrently. 13 In addition, LSS and KOA are independently correlated with increased pain and dysfunction of the lower extremities; 16 therefore, LSS patients with KOA may exhibit poor clinical recovery

score (0.36), followed by knee osteoarthritis and hip osteoarthritis, Table 1. The greatest QALY gain was seen in patients undergoing hip arthroplasty (0.38), knee arthroplasty (0.35) and lumbar spine surgery (0.32), nearly 2.5-fold greater QALY gained than for all other surgical procedures, Table 1 and Figure 1. Conclusion: Patients with lumbar spondylosis have the worst reported HRQOL at baseline compared to other surgical cohorts in the literature. This, coupled with the high prevalence of lumbar spondylosis, incurs a detrimental impact on the overall health

followed more closely for progression of disease. Interestingly, we found a high prevalence of lumbar sacralization in patients with L4 spondylolysis. Lumbar sacralization is one kind of LSTV. It has been reported that the prevalence of LSTV ranges from 4% to 36% and the mean prevalence of sacralization is 7.5%. 4 , 13 The prevalence of LSTV was 18.1% in a cohort with knee osteoarthritis or risk factors for knee osteoarthritis. 18 Paik et al. 19 described 439 (5.3%) subjects with sacralized L5 vertebra among 8280 consecutive patients with low-back pain.

Pregnant women as well as patients with walking impairment due to any other known neurological, orthopedic, or rheumatic disease (e.g., paraparesis, hemiparesis, hip/knee osteoarthritis, vertigo) were excluded a priori. Data Collection We recorded demographic patient characteristics (age, sex, BMI, smoking, and working status) and information on comorbidity (Charlson Comorbidity Index and American Society of Anesthesiologists risk score), 25 as well as disease-specific and surgical parameters. Each patient’s clinical condition was assessed by applying a set of

natural aging process, including hip and knee osteoarthritis, sarcopenia, and lumbar canal stenosis; and 2) the elderly have reduced physiological reserves and may be less tolerant of surgery. 16 Throughout the literature, although less effective, surgery still halts disease progression in elderly patients and, in some cases, results in significant improvements in functional status and quality of life. Surgeons should therefore not discriminate on the basis of age but use this information to appropriately manage their patients' expectations. Future studies are required
