Description of registry

Overall aim: to register patient-reported results after all spine surgery procedures performed in Sweden. The register, which was started in 1993 and went online in 2002, is managed by a steering committee under the Swedish Society of Spinal Surgeons: http://www.4s.nu.

All surgical conditions of the spine can be registered, as well as all types of surgical procedures, except for fractures, which was transferred to the Fracture Registry in 2015. Basic demographic data is registered, and most results are then based on patient-reported data (PROM and PREM) concerning e.g. pain, function, quality of life, working situation and expectations after 1,2,5 and 10 years.

Clinics reporting to the registry have continuous access to their results online, and can compare their results with all registered clinics in the country as well as with national mean figures. The public can follow analysed and described clinical comparisons online at: http://www.4s.nu/Kopia_av_patientsida/index.html


All surgical spine surgery procedures for all diagnosis groups except fractures are included.
