AbstractChronic or persistent pain is increasingly recognised as a consequence of surgery in a number of different disciplines. The pain often exhibit qualities that differ from the acute post-operative pain and may represent changes in the central nervous system. There is lack of information regarding the incidence of persistent pain in patients following spinal surgery for scoliosis. This study aims to estimate the incidence of persistent pain following spinal surgery for scoliosis in a group of mainly adolescent patients. Questionnaires were distributed to consecutive patients attending the outpatient clinic of a hospital with specialist services in paediatric orthopaedics and spinal surgery. One hundred and five patients out of 122 eligible patients completed the survey. Fifty-two percent had ongoing pain upon hospital discharge either in the primary surgical site and/or in the iliac bone graft site. Approximately 10 and 7% of all patients had back and pelvic pain persisting beyond 12 months, respectively. A small proportion described elements of neuropathic pain. There was a trend suggesting that those who experienced more severe post-operative pain were more likely to develop persistent pain. These data are consistent with those reports that implicate surgery as the trigger for chronic pain. © 2007 Springer-Verlag.
