Lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) is a minimally-invasive approach to anterior spinal column fusion, deformity correction and indirect decompression of the lumbar spine. A rarely reported possible complication of the procedure is endplate fracture which has the potential for nerve root compression. Here we present a case of endplate fracture and nerve compression after stand-alone LLIF, its diagnosis, and its subsequent successful treatment with transforaminal endoscopic spine surgery. The case highlights the possible role for minimally invasive endoscopic surgery as a rescue procedure after fusion complication...

PURPOSE: Can a mixture of hydroxyapatite (HA) and autologous bone from decompression sites produce similar results when used for transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF)? In the current literature, autologous iliac crest bone grafts (ICBGs) have been reported the gold standard for this procedure. Indeed, to date, no clinical data have confirmed that a mixture of equal volumes of HA and local autologous bone produce similar results in term of fusion as the same volume of autologous ICBG alone...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) spine procedures were developed to limit operative time, the extent of dissection, and reduce perioperative morbidity. Here, we asked what are the "learning curves" for these MIS spine procedures? METHODS: We reviewed studies in the literature that discussed the "learning curves" attributed to performing different MIS spine surgical procedures. Of interest, the majority were single-surgeon series. RESULTS: Very few articles assessed the learning curves for different MIS spine procedures...

The conventional location methods for minimally invasive spinal surgery (MISS) were mainly based on repeated fluoroscopy in a trial-and-error manner preoperatively and intraoperatively. Localization system mainly consisted of preoperative applied radiopaque frame and intraoperative guiding device, which has the potential to minimize fluoroscopy repetition in MISS. The study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of a novel lumbar localization system in reducing radiation exposure to patients.Included patients underwent minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MISTLIF) or percutaneous transforaminal endoscopic discectomy (PTED)...

OBJECTIVE The accuracy of robot-guided pedicle screw placement has been proven to be high, but little is known about the impact of such guidance on clinical outcomes such as the rate of revision surgeries for screw malposition. In addition, there are very few data about the impact of robot-guided fusion on patient-reported outcomes (PROs). Thus, the clinical benefit for the patient is unclear. In this study, the authors analyzed revision rates for screw malposition and changes in PROs following minimally invasive robot-guided pedicle screw fixation...

We present a 68-year-old woman who developed acute cerebral subdural hematoma (SDH) early after transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion. Four hours postoperatively, the patient complained of headache and nausea. Enhanced cranial computed tomography showed cerebral SDH. Despite no obvious intraoperative dural damage, we suggest that cerebrospinal fluid leakage by incidental dural tear likely caused the SDH. To our knowledge, this is the first report of detected cerebral SDH immediately after spinal surgery in spite of no neurological deficits...
