BACKGROUND: Quality improvement projects increasingly emphasize standardization of surgical work flow to optimize operative room efficiency. Removing special cause variability resulting from nonsurgical waste is an obvious target; however, resident surgical education must be maintained, even in the setting of process improvement. OBJECTIVE: To describe the impact of resident-identified "risky" or "uncomfortable" procedural steps on operative time during transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF)...

OBJECTIVE: To analyze the clinical effects of percutaneous endoscopic technique via three different approaches for highly migrated lumbar disc herniation. METHODS: The clinical data of 68 patients underwent percutaneous endoscopic technique from June 2011 to June 2014 were retrospectively analyzed. There were 43 males and 25 females, aged from 11 to 77 years old with an average of (42.29±15.92) years. The patients were divided into three groups according to different operative approaches, of them, 45 cases were by transforaminal approach (group A), 15 cases by translaminar approach (group B), and 8 cases by transpedicular approach (group C)...

BACKGROUND: The cortical screw (CS) trajectory for pedicle screw placement is believed to require a smaller incision and less tissue dissection resulting in lower blood loss and faster healing; however, this has not yet been confirmed in clinical studies. OBJECTIVE: To compare CS transforaminal lumbar interbody fusions (TLIF), traditional pedicle screw (TPS) trajectory TLIFs, and posterolateral fusion (PLF) without interbody for differences in operative characteristics and complications...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MI-TLIF) has been employed in increasing cases compared with open TLIF (Open-TLIF). However, it is uncertain whether the advantages of MI-TLIF can also be specifically applied in obese patients. Therefore, the current study was thereby carried out aiming to compare the outcomes of MI-TLIF with those of Open-TLIF in obese patients with lumbar degenerative diseases. METHODS: Electronic databases were systemically retrieved from construction to May 2017...

Objective: To compare the efficacy of percutaneous endoscopic transforaminal discectomy (PTED) and transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) in the treatment of high lumbar disc herniation. Methods: The clinical data of patients with high lumbar disc herniation from February 2010 to February 2015 were retrospective analyzed. According to the inclusion criteria, a total of 63 cases were enrolled, including PTED group 33 cases, TLIF group 30 cases. The improvement of the two groups before and after surgery was assessed by visual analogue scale (VAS) and Oswestry dysfunction index (ODI)...

Recently, minimally invasive spine arthrodesis has gained popularity among spine surgeons. Minimally invasive techniques have advantages and disadvantages compared with traditional open techniques. Comparisons between short-term outcomes of minimally invasive transforaminal interbody fusion and open transforaminal interbody fusion in terms of estimated blood loss, postoperative pain, and hospital length of stay have been well documented and generally favor the minimally invasive technique. However, the advantages of minimally invasive transforaminal interbody fusion must be evaluated in the context of long-term results, such as patient-reported outcomes and the success of arthrodesis...

BACKGROUND: Instrumentation in patients with osteoporosis is challenging. Bone cement-augmented fenestrated pedicle screw fixation is a new procedure for fixation in the osteoporotic bone; and, applying minimally invasive techniques to the above is a challenging and novel concept. AIMS: To evaluate the clinical and radiological outcome of minimally invasive spine surgery transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MIS-TLIF) in patients with spondylolisthesis and poor bone quality, performed with rigid instrumentation using bone cement [poly(methylmethacrylate)]-augmented fenestrated pedicle screws...

BACKGROUND: Epidural steroid injection is widely used to treat the short and long-term symptoms of low back and radicular pain. To the best of our knowledge, the influence of transforaminal epidural steroid injection (TFSI) combined with caudal epidural steroid injection (CESI) on pain intensity, patient satisfaction, and quality of life in lumbar radiculopathy has not been examined. AIM: To evaluate the short and long-term efficacy of TFSI, and TFSI combined with CESI (TFSI + CESI) in patients with lumbar radiculopathy...

Transforaminal Percutaneous Endoscopic Discectomy (TPED) is a minimally invasive technique mainly used for the treatment of lumbar disc herniation from a lateral approach. Performed under local anesthesia, TPED has been proven to be a safe and effective technique which has been also associated with shorter rehabilitation period, reduced blood loss, trauma, and scar tissue compared to conventional procedures. However, the procedure should be performed by a spine surgeon experienced in the specific technique and capable of recognizing or avoiding various challenging conditions...

OBJECTIVE A prospective randomized controlled study was conducted to clarify whether percutaneous transforaminal endoscopic discectomy (PTED) results in better clinical outcomes and less surgical trauma than microendoscopic discectomy (MED). METHODS In this single-center, open-label, randomized controlled trial, patients were included if they had persistent signs and symptoms of radiculopathy with corresponding imaging-confirmed lumbar disc herniation. Patients were randomly allocated to the PTED or the MED group by computer-generated randomization codes...

OBJECTIVE The inability to significantly improve sagittal parameters has been a limitation of minimally invasive surgery for transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MIS TLIF). Traditional cages have a limited capacity to restore lordosis. This study evaluates the use of a crescent-shaped articulating expandable cage (Altera) for MIS TLIF. METHODS This is a retrospective review of 1- and 2-level MIS TLIF. Radiographic outcomes included differences in segmental and lumbar lordosis, disc height, evidence of fusion, and any endplate violations...

BACKGROUND: Transforaminal epidural steroid injections (TFESIs) and facet joint blocks can be performed under fluoroscopy or computed tomography (CT) guidance. The purpose of this retrospective cohort study was to compare patient radiation dose for lumbar TFESIs and facet joint blocks under CT guidance versus fluoroscopic guidance. METHODS: The primary outcome of this retrospective cohort study was the difference between the estimated effective dose (ED) of CT guidance and fluoroscopic guidance for TFESIs and facet joint blocks...

: In this historical study we present an overview of lumbar interbody fusion surgery, which is one of the most commonly performed instrumented spinal fusion surgeries. The present article focuses on the history of lumbar interbody fusion surgery, starting from the foundation which was laid in the 19 and 20 century until today. The development of material and techniques evolved from simple wiring to the combination of transforaminal interbody fusion with PEEK cages and pedicle screw fixation with poly axial screws...

BACKGROUND: Epidural steroid injection for low back and leg pain has been shown to result in a positive clinical outcome. Lumbosacral selective nerve root block (SNRB) via a transforaminal approach is commonly performed under fluoroscopic guidance. However, ultrasound guidance is an alternative to overcome the radiological disadvantages. This study examined the accuracy of needle-tip localization under ultrasound guidance with a contrast bubble, compared with fluoroscopic guidance. OBJECTIVE: The primary objectives were to envisage the needle-tip localization with an air bubble by ultrasound and also to determine the accuracy of needle-tip location in transforaminal lumbar SNRB for low back and leg pain patients who were not surgical candidates...
