Lumbar backbone fusion has been extensively accepted as a remedy for varied spinal pathologies, together with the degenerative spinal ailments. Transforaminal interbody fusion (TLIF) utilizing minimally invasive surgical procedure (MIS-TLIF) is well-known for lowering muscle injury. Nonetheless, the necessity to use a tubular retractor throughout MIS-TLIF might contribute to some limitations of instrument dealing with, and quite a lot of problem in confirming contralateral decompression and correct endplate preparation. A number of research in spinal surgical procedure have reported the usage of the unilateral biportal endoscopic spinal surgical procedure (approach for decompression or discectomy). The aim of this examine is to explain the method of and technical ideas for TLIF utilizing the biportal endoscopic spinal surgical procedure approach. Biportal endoscopic TLIF is much like MIS-TLIF besides that there isn’t a want for a tubular retractor. It’s presupposed to be another choice for alternating open lumbar fusion and MIS fusion in degenerative lumbar illness that wants fusion surgical procedure.
