The Grand Finale

The ‘Best of Show’
5 of the best rated abstracts have been chosen by the EUROSPINE ProgCom to qualify for the Best Podium Award, but it was left to the audience to decide the final winner. All 5 presented their nominated papers, before the audience had 20 minutes to make up their mind, and more than 800 did so! Thank you for the numerous votes, which made Peter Försth’s paper No long time benefit from fusion in decompressive surgery for lumbar spinal stenosis. 5 Year-Results from the Swedish spinal stenosis study, a multicenter RCT of 233 Patients to the winning title. We congratulate Peter Försth and his research team from Sweden to the EUROSPINE Best Podium Award 2017!
