Researchers are curious about issues linked to smoking. In a review of 7547 patients who experienced back surgery, they found that 18% were smokers. The researchers noted that contrasted with the non-smokers, the smokers were younger, male, nondiabetic, and nonobese. These patients who have coronary artery disease were more apt to be smokers. Smokers who had lumbar spine back surgery came to their healthcare provider more with leg pain than back pain and disability. Their employment, insurance/uninsured, and education status were also related to smoking status. Interestingly though, smoking status didn’t affect the disability status at a year after back surgery. (1) Altering such risk factors work equally well for smokers and nonsmokers luckily.
