Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

This article is a retrospective study that introduces a simple technique for reducing lumbar spondylolisthesis during posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF). The study included 23 patients who underwent PLIF using a newly designed T-shaped levering tool. The authors were able to achieve spondylolisthesis reduction without difficulty using this tool. Immediate postoperative radiographs showed a correction rate of 96.7%, while final follow-up radiographs showed a correction rate of 93.0%. The study concludes that this technique allows for lumbar spondylolisthesis reduction without difficulty

ABSTRACT

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study.

PURPOSE: To introduce a simple technique to facilitate lumbar spondylolisthesis reduction during posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF).

OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE: Spondylolisthesis reduction has been conducted in various ways, but most of them require special complicated tools.

METHODS: T-shaped levering tool was newly designed. This study included 23 patients who underwent PLIF for lumbar spondylolisthesis treatment using newly designed T-shaped tools and followed up for >2 years. Demographic, clinical, and surgical data, which had been routinely collected in a database, were analyzed. The degree of listhesis was measured on lateral radiographs by the Taillard method.

RESULTS: The authors could achieve lumbar spondylolisthesis reduction without difficulty using newly designed T-shaped tools. Immediate postoperative lateral radiographs revealed a reduced preoperative slip of 36.9%±9.6% to 1.2%±1.9%, showing a correction rate of 96.7%. The final follow-up radiographs revealed the mean final slip of 2.6%±2.7%, showing a correction rate of 93.0%.

CONCLUSIONS: This technique allowed lumbar spondylolisthesis reduction without difficulty.
