Abstract: This study investigated the relationship between X-ray sagittal lumbar spine and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) lumbar spine parameters with the course of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) and postoperative fast recovery nursing prognosis. 85 patients with lumbar spinal stenosis were selected, according to the course of disease, the patients were divided into group A (course of disease > 10 years) and group B (course of disease ≤ 10 years), the differences of X-ray and MRI parameters between the two groups were compared. The spine pelvis vertical axis (SVA), thoracic kyphosis angle (TK), thoracolumbar junction angle (TLJA), pelvic inclination angle (PT), pelvic incidence angle-thoracic lordosis angle (PL-LL), thoracic lordosis angle (LL), spinal canal area, dural sac area, spinal canal area/vertebral body area, dural sac area/spinal canal area, sagittal diameter of lateral recess, sagittal diameter of intervertebral foramen and intervertebral foramen area in group A and group B were statistically significant (P<0.05). The X-ray, MRI parameter in patients with ineffective and effective treatment were statistically significant (P<0.05). The X-ray and MRI parameters of lumbar spine in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis are related to the course of disease and the curative effect of postoperative rapid rehabilitation nursing, which is worthy of further study.
