A variety of techniques exist for fusing lumbar spine vertebrae to help alleviate back pain, including posterior, transforaminal, anterior, and lateral lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF, TLIF, ALIF, and LLIF, respectively).

The animations below allow an inside view of each of these surgeries. Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF). Oblique lumbar interbody fusion During the last 20 years several less-invasive anterior approaches to the lumbar spine have become standard, including the extreme lateral lumbar interbody fusion.

Although it is associated with a lower risk of vascular injury compared with anterior midline approaches, neuromonitoring is considered mandatory to avoid neurologic complications.

Interestingly. Therefore, L5 S1 fusion surgery involves the surgical removal of the L5/S1 disc and fusing the L5 and S1 spinal bones together. Different surgical techniques and approaches exist.

Full endoscopic lumbar interbody fusion (FELIF) has advantages in direct decompression of pathology with minimal invasive technique. We report novel technique of endoscopic fusion method through full guided with endoscopic view monitoring system. The present study aims firstly to comprehensively review the available literature and evidence for different lumbar interbody fusion (LIF) techniques.

Secondly, we propose a set of recommendations. Literature Review and Commentary Minimally-invasive techniques for transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion have been shown to reduce intra-operative blood loss, muscle injury, post-operative pain and length-of- stay and expedite recovery compared to the open technique [].

The first is uniportal endoscopic lumbar interbody fusion and the other is biportal endoscopic lumbar interbody fusion.5,6 With regard to surgical approaches or corridor, one approach is a trans-Kambin approach using uniportal endoscopic surgery [] and the other is a posterolateral approach like MIS TLIF using uniportal or biportal.

This technique is a variation of PLIF. In transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF), your surgeon approaches the disk space slightly more from the side.

The advantage of this approach is that it requires less movement of the nerve roots; thus, theoretically, it decreases the chance of nerve injury. An interbody fusion is a method of fusing the lumbar spine that involves removing the intervertebral disk.

When the disk space has been cleared out, a metal, plastic, or bone spacer is implanted between the two adjoining vertebrae. These spacers, or "cages," usually contain bone graft material. This promotes bone healing and facilitates the fusion. Lumbar interbody fusion techniques have been developed and modified over the years to improve fusion rates and clinical outcomes in the treatment of degenerative lumbar spine disease.

Both posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) and transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) are now standard procedures in the spinal surgeons' armamentarium.

The lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) approach is a minimally invasive surgery that can be used as an alternative to traditional lumbar interbody fusion techniques. LLIF accesses the intervertebral disc through the retroperitoneum and psoas muscle to avoid major vessels and visceral organs.

Discusses variations in technique, including thoracoscopy, microdiscectomy, interbody fusion, osteotomies, laminectomy, MIS decompression techniques and more. Explores alternatives to fusion in younger arthritic patients, including disc arthroplasty, facet joint replacement, nucleus replacement.

A newer technique, called a TLIF (transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion), involves placing only one bone graft spacer in the middle of the interbody space, without retraction of the spinal nerves. PLIF and TLIF procedures are commonly performed for a variety of painful spinal conditions, such as spondylolisthesis and degenerative disc disease.

Provides a complete guide to all contemporary forms of spinal implant systems. It not only highlights the newest devices, but also the clinical guidelines needed to choose and apply the best implant for any surgical situation. Along with an all-inclusive list of the spinal instruments available today, the book offers direct comparisons of each system to help make an informed and confident 5/5(3).

The true lateral trans-psoas lumbar interbody fusion procedure is a modification of the retroperitoneal approach to the lumbar spine, which uses a tubular dilator/retractor system and was first reported in the literature by Ozgur, et al.

in Other terms commonly used to refer to this technique include lateral lumbar interbody fusion. Introduction Each year in the United States more thanindividuals undergo spinal fusions for degenerative lumbar spine pathology.

Minimally invasive techniques for posterior lumbar interbody fusion offer the benefits of a smaller incision, minimization of injury to muscles and tendons, and shorter hospital stays over traditional open techniques.

Circumferential lumbar fusion can be challenging, however, requiring either thecal sac retraction and bilateral facet disruption of a posterior lumbar interbody fusion or the morbidity, prolonged hospital stay, and expense associated with a combined anterior and posterior approach 1– 3.

By accessing the disc space via the foramen, surgeons. Surgical interbody fusion is an effective treatment option to stabilize the motion of the painful segments and to provide decompression of the neural elements.

There are several surgical options available for lumbar interbody fusion, and each technique has its own inherent advantages and disadvantages. It is another minimally invasive lumbar fusion technique. L and L are the lumbar levels most easily accessed by this technique, which is close to nerves on the spinal column.

In order to prevent nerve damage, electromyography or EMG is used for nerve monitoring, which provides surgeons the information about the the postion of nervs and.

Posterior lumbar interbody fusion has been used since the late s in the treatment of degenerative lumbar spine. We evaluated a modification to posterior lumbar interbody fusion called transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF). METHODS: A retrospective analysis was performed on 24 patients (9 women, 15 men) who underwent TLIF.

Comparing the costs of MIS lumbar interbody fusion techniques with that of open techniques is particularly important, since the outcomes through 2 years appear similar between the 2 groups. Lucio et al investigated the hospital costs of MI-TLIFs compared with open TLIFs from index hospitalization through 45 days postoperatively.

Cited by: 6. of expandable implants following lumbar interbody fusion. Methods: A systematic review was performed to identify studies investigating expandable intervertebral body devices in lumbar fusion. Radiographic parameters, fusion assessments, patient-reported outcomes (PROs), complications, and revision data were recorded.

A comparison of expandable and static devices was performed using a. Due to advances in medical technology over the last decade, minimally invasive anterolateral approaches for lumbar interbody fusion have developed significantly.

These specific approaches remove the need for disruption of the posterior spinal column, while also allowing wide exposure of the disk space for placement of large interbody grafts.

Revision surgery is technically more challenging and may cause avoidance of such approaches because of altered anatomy and absent bony landmarks.Oblique lumbar interbody fusion (OLIF) is a minimally invasive procedure that involves the removal of damaged intervertebral disc and bone, and fusing of two adjacent spinal vertebrae.

It adopts a lateral approach when compared to traditional methods of spinal fusion techniques, and in doing so, spares the disruption of major back muscles.
