Évaluation de la satisfaction de patients atteints de la maladie de Strümpell-Lorrain, ayant bénéficié d’une pose de pompe à BACLOFENE intrathécale : étude observationnelle rétrospective, multicentrique

Abstract : Introduction. Strümpell-Lorrain disease, or hereditary spastic paraplegia, is an heterogenous group of genetical, neurodegenerative pathologies. There are only symptomatic treatments because the physiopathology is rich and complex, and because there is a huge variability of symptoms from one to another patient. One of these treatments is the intrathecal BACLOFEN pump. There are few studies about this pump that show gait improvement but almost none of them describe the patients' satisfaction. Methods. A satisfaction survey has been submitted to patients with hereditary spastic paraplegia who have had an intrathecal pump implantation. Results Most of the patients were walking at the time of the implantation of the pump. Most of them noticed an initial improvement on walking quality and speed. Most of them answered: "if I had the choice, I would do it again". Discussion. Despite preconceptions, the baclofen pump has no negative effect on walking patients. This study is insufficient but underlines the importance of the first evaluation of the patient and the follow-up care. Conclusion. The baclofen pump has is great for reducing pain due to the spasticity et for the improvement of walking quality and speed. However, it has to be proposed with caution to patients who still have enough strength not to lose any autonomy.
