Objectif : Polyhandicap is a chronic and definitive pathological situation that is highly complex, due to the heterogeneity of its etiologies. The medical and surgical management of scoliosis, a prevalent complication during the growth of polyhandicaped subjects, has various objectives which aim mainly at limiting the occurrence of over-handicaps, by ensuring greater comfort. We hypothesize that spinal fusions confer a benefit on the deficiencies, capacities, and quality of life in those subjects, which is measurable by the Polyhandicap Severity Scale (PSS), a newly published specific hetero-evaluation tool.

Matériel/Patients et méthodes : We conducted a monocentric retrospective study focusing on a cohort of polyhandicaped subjects, who have undergone posterior spinal fusion between 2009 and 2020. Variations of the PSS score and subscores were evaluated 6 months before and 12 months after surgery. Neuro-orthopedic data and perioperative complications were also recorded.

Résultats : In this preliminary study, we included 5 subjects (mean age at surgery: 14,8-years-old) suffering from severe scoliosis (mean Cobb angle: 73,6°) and responsible for orthopedic deformities and multi-systemic impairments. Mean variation between pre and post-operative’s PSS indicated that the level of severity was lower 1 year after surgery (-3,1 points), even if each participant had at least one surgical complication (i.e osteoporotic fracture, surgical site infection, acute organ failure).

Discussion - Conclusion : The indication for surgery, therefore, requires a precise multidisciplinary evaluation of the benefit-risk balance. In that way, specific hetero evaluations can be useful tools. Adding quality of life parameters and conducting prospective evaluations may help to improve those complex care projects.
