Spine Research Unit

The Vall d’Hebron Spine Research Unit (VHSRU) is a growing multidisciplinary group of professionals devoted to spinal disorders with an increasing impact in terms of number of publications, associated IF and research funding. VHSRU has published 198 articles in spine field, 40% of them Q1, with a total IF of 451,9. 

Our research unit is organized in four research lines: 

  • Pediatric and adolescent deformity, 
  • Adult deformity, 
  • Spinal cord injuries,
  • Cellular therapy and new surgical techniques.

VHRSU has been involved as coordinator or collaborator in 25 funded research projects. VHRSU is currently coordinating 5 competitive projects granted by national and international institutions (Marató TV3, Eurospine, SRS, AO, GEER). One of our research projects, the European Spine Study Group (ESSG), has been very successful, with more than 60 published manuscripts and 244 podium presentations. All these projects allowed us to establish new synergies with other research centers and universities. We hope to expand this network in the future.

Research lines

Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis

The group has generated very relevant information in the field of body image perception in AIS over the years and has created a new scale: the Trunk Appearance Perception Scale (TAPS). More recently, we have evaluated the validity of clinical photographs to determine which parameters measured in the pictures correlate with radiological measurements and patients perceptions. Main research goals are: 1) Analyze responsiveness of TAPS after surgical treatment of idiopathic scoliosis. 2) Analyze change in photographic measurements after surgical or orthotic treatment of idiopathic scoliosis

Adult Spinal Deformity

Highly prevalent pathology linked to population ageing. Since 2010, the VH Spine Research Unit is coordinating the unique European multicenter and prospective study and database for ASD called European Spine Study Group (ESSG). Database includes more than 1.000 patients treated in leading European spine units (Madrid, Bordeaux, Zurich, Ankara, Istanbul). Main research goals are: 1) Identify predictive factors in heath related quality of life measures (SF36, SRS-22, ODI, VAS). Compare clinical and radiographic features and outcomes at baseline and follow up visits of non-operative and operative patients. 2) Assessment of peri-operative complications and risks in adult deformity surgery. Stratify or score the risk benefit ratio to produce an algorithm for surgical treatment. Limited available information in the field, results are expected to be highly relevant and necessary to establish treatment guidelines.

Anaesthesia management and perioperative complications in complex spinal surgery

Identification of patients at risk, and development of guidelines to prevent allogenic blood transfusion. Currently running and coordinating project TRA -189 /FISS: Clinical, multicenter, randomized, placebo-controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of perioperative use of tranexamic acid on transfusion requirements and surgical bleeding in complex spine surgery test.

New therapies to achieve bone fusion: advanced cellular therapy with mesenchymal cells

Autologous bone remains the gold standard for stimulating bone repair and regeneration. Spine fusion is one of the most prevalent procedures in orthopaedic surgery. Stem cell use in orthopaedics is very promising but still experimental. We are running a trial to compare mesenchymal stem cells immobilised in bone allograft versus autologous bone graft in fusion for L4-L5 degenerative spondylolisthesis (XCEL-MT-10-02). The main research goals are: 1) Check the safety of the use of mesenchymal cells in lumbar fusion. 2) To analyze the feasibility of using cell therapy in lumbar fusion comparison with the current gold standard.
