Özet

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: In 2008, Mirza et al. designed and validated the first and only index capable of quantifying the complexity of spine surgery. However, this index is not fully applicable to adult spinal deformity (ASD) surgery as it does not include the surgical techniques most commonly used and most strongly associated with perioperative complications in patients with ASD.
