ABSTRACT

Lumbar spine diseases often cause lower back pain, lower extremity pain, numbness, and paresthesia. In severe cases, intermittent claudication may occur, affecting the quality of life of patients. Surgery is often required when conservative treatment fails, or when patients’ symptoms become unbearable. Surgical treatments include laminectomy and discectomy, as well as interbody fusion. The main purpose of laminectomy and discectomy is to relieve nerve compression; however, recurrence is common due to spinal instability. Interbody fusion improves stability while relieving nerve compression and significantly reduces the risk of recurrence compared to non-fusion surgery. Nonetheless, conventionally posterior intervertebral fusion requires separation of the muscles to expose the operated segment, which causes more trauma to the patient. In contrast, the oblique lateral interbody fusion (OLIF) technique achieves spinal fusion with minimal trauma to the patients and shortens the recovery time. This article introduces procedures of stand-alone OLIF surgery performed in the lumbar spine, providing a reference for other spine surgeons.
