The transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) is used for the treatment of back and leg pain secondary to spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease, and spondylolisthesis. Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) is associated with less estimated blood loss (EBL), decreased length of stay, lower infection rates, and similar outcomes compared to the traditional TLIF. Fluoroscopy time has been reported with MIS-TLIF, but there are limited data on specific radiation dosages. We performed a retrospective analysis of a prospectively acquired cohort of patients undergoing MIS-TLIF...

INTRODUCTION: Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) has been widely used in the treatment of lumbar degenerative disc disorders and shows favourable clinical results. Recently, cortical bone trajectory (CBT) has become a new trajectory for screw insertion in the lumbar spine. Several biomechanical studies have demonstrated that the CBT technique achieves screw purchase and strength greater than the traditional method. Currently, the available data on the clinical effectiveness of the two performed surgeries, TLIF with CBT screws (CBT-TLIF) and TLIF with traditional pedicle screws (PS-TLIF), are insufficient...

Arthur R Kurzbuch, Didier Recoules-Arche
Lumbar spine revision surgery is considered as challenging and related to longer operation time and complications because of the loss of anatomical landmarks and the formation of postoperative epidural fibrosis. Minimal invasive lumbar spinal surgery techniques have been refined over the last 5 years but the reexposure of the dura, the formation of postsurgical scar tissue and related dural tears remain a source of complications. For lumbar spinal revision surgery we advocate the minimal invasive Extraforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (ELIF) technique...

Aortic injury during transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) is a rare but severe complication. We experienced aortic injury during TLIF at L3-4 with a 59-year-old woman diagnosed with an adjacent segment disease at L3-4. Severe bleeding occurred during disc space expansion, and the blood pressure dropped to 60/40 mmHg. The patient's vital sign stabilized after compression with gauze and Gelfoam in addition to blood transfusion. The patient was treated with endovascular repair using a percutaneous technique after intertransverse fusion at L3-4 was completed...

BACKGROUND: Thoracic epidural anesthesia (TEC) is one of the pillars of preoperative pain care. Particularly for spine surgery which causes significant postoperative pain TEC seems like an appealing option. However, beneficial effects of a TEC are questionable when the catheter is not used intraoperatively, a decision that is usually based on the surgeon's wish to perform immediate neurological examination postoperatively. METHODS: 40 patients undergoing transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion surgery (TLIF) were randomized in two groups...

REVIEW
Allicia O Imada, Tridu R Huynh, Doniel Drazin
Minimally invasive spine surgeries (MISS) are becoming increasingly favored as alternatives to open spine procedures because of the reduced blood loss, postoperative pain, and recovery time. Studies have shown mixed results regarding the efficacy and safety of minimally invasive procedures compared to the traditional, open counterparts. The objectives of this systematic analysis are to compare clinical outcomes between the three MISS and open procedures: (1) laminectomy/discectomy, (2) transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF), and (3) posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF)...

OBJECTIVE: Since its introduction and FDA approval, rhBMP-2 has been adopted by spine surgeons as a substitute for ICBG in numerous spinal fusion techniques. As broad clinical use increased, reports on potential complications associated with rhBMP-2 also increased. We provide our experience with TLIF using rhBMP-2 or ICBG in an entirely Hispanic population. METHODS: This was a 2-year retrospective study of 67 patients, with 26 in the rhBMP-2 group and 41 in the ICBG group, who underwent TLIF...

Although spondylolisthesis was traditionally treated with posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF), minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MIS-TLIF) was recently proposed as an alternative treatment for spondylolisthesis. However, no studies have focused on the comparison of these 2 techniques' outcome on spondylolisthesis.The operative reports and perioperative data of patients who underwent single-level primary open PLIF (n = 29) and MIS-TLIF (n = 26) for I/II spondylolisthesis were retrospectively evaluated...
