Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a degenerative disorder of the spine that predominantly affects the elderly. LSS is the most common spinal disorder leading to surgery in Sweden. Recent randomized controlled studies have showed better outcome with surgery compared to conservative treatment. However, after surgery, health related quality of life (HRQoL) and function continue to be inferior to that of the background population. Many patients experience residual leg or back pain and 60-70% of… Expand
