Utility of the MMPI Pain Assessment Index in Predicting Outcome After Lumbar Surgery.
Turner, Judith; And Others
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v42 n5 p764-69 Sep 1986
Examined the ability of the Pain Assesment Index, determined from presurgery Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory scores, to predict outcome subsequent to lumbar laminectomy and discectomy. The PAI was found to have good ability to identify patients who were doing well after surgery, but low power in predicting which patients would have fair or poor surgical results. (Author/KS)
