Quality of Life Assessment and Co-Morbidities of Maxillofacial Surgery Department Patients Undergoing Iliac Crest Harvesting Procedures


Mohammed Alghamdi, Maha Alshehri, Mohammed Sindi
Abstract

Autogenous bone grafts are the gold standard for bone harvesting, namely the iliac crest. A retrospective, cross-sectional study was conducted, to assess the quality-of-life changes and donor site morbidity of patients who underwent anterior or posterior iliac crest autogenous bone graft harvesting procedures at King Abdulaziz University Hospital, using a survey instrument to obtain responses via phone call from 31 interviewed patients, mainly males (51.6%), with mean age of 36.77(17.1). Results revealed significant correlation between the pain level and time alone (p=0.006), and between pain level and time interacting with age (p=0.006). Most of the patients went back to baseline after 6 weeks of follow-up. The results further revealed that patients who had anterior iliac crest graft had better QoL and less pain than those who had posterior iliac crest bone graft.
