Biering-Sørensen, F; Burns, A S; Curt, A; Harvey, L A; Jane Mulcahey, M; Nance, P W; Sherwood, A M; Sisto, S A (2012). International spinal cord injury musculoskeletal basic data set. Spinal Cord, 50(11):797-802.

Abstract

Objectives:To develop an International Spinal Cord Injury (SCI) Musculoskeletal Basic Data Set as part of the International SCI Data Sets to facilitate consistent collection and reporting of basic musculoskeletal findings in the SCI population.Setting:International.Methods:A first draft of an SCI Musculoskeletal Basic Data Set was developed by an international working group. This was reviewed by many different organizations, societies and individuals over 9 months. Revised versions were created successively.Results:The final version of the International SCI Musculoskeletal Basic Data Set contains questions on neuro-musculoskeletal history before spinal cord lesion; presence of spasticity/spasms; treatment for spasticity within the last 4 weeks; fracture(s) since the spinal cord lesion; heterotopic ossification; contracture; the location of degenerative neuromuscular and skeletal changes due to overuse after SCI; SCI-related neuromuscular scoliosis; the method(s) used to determine the presence of neuromuscular scoliosis; surgical treatment of the scoliosis; other musculoskeletal problems; if any of the musculoskeletal challenges above interfere with activities of daily living. Instructions for data collection and the data collection form are freely available on the International Spinal Cord Society (ISCoS) website (www.iscos.org.uk).Conclusion:The International SCI Musculoskeletal Basic Data Set will facilitate consistent collection and reporting of basic musculoskeletal findings in the SCI population.
