OBJECTIVE: To radiologically measure the parameters of endplates and the apophyseal ring and to suggest an applicable length for a lumbar interbody cage for Chinese patients. METHODS: Twenty-four volunteers were enrolled to undergo lumbar computed tomography (CT). On the endplate plane, the diameters of the endplates (L1-S1) were measured along the axis of the cage with different lumbar interbody fusion procedures. Whereas the mid-oblique diameter (mid-OD) and maximum oblique diameter (max-OD) were defined as the minimal and maximal diameters of the endplates in transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF), side-sagittal diameter (side-SD), mid-sagittal diameter (mid-SD), and transverse diameter (TD) represented the diameters of endplates in posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF), anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF); and oblique lateral interbody fusion (OLIF)/extreme lateral interbody fusion (XLIF), /direct lateral interbody fusion (DLIF), respectively...
