Clinical Study Of Percutaneous Endoscopic Large-Channel Fusion And Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion In The Treatment Of Degenerative Lumbar Spinal Stenosis London Spine Lumbar Stenosis

This article describes a study on the clinical efficacy of two surgical techniques, percutaneous endoscopic large-channel fusion and transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF), in the treatment of degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis. The study, conducted at Nanjing Lishui People’s Hospital in China, included 100 patients with this condition. The participants were divided into two groups, with one group receiving the percutaneous endoscopic large-channel fusion and the other group receiving TLIF. The researchers measured various outcomes, including perioperative indexes, clinical efficacy, inflammatory responses, pain levels, and complications. The results showed that the percutaneous endoscopic large-channel fusion group had significantly better outcomes in terms of bleeding, drainage, inflammatory responses, total effective rate, complications, pain scores, and functional scores compared to the TLIF group. Therefore, the researchers concluded that the former technique is more effective and beneficial for patients, suggesting its clinical promotion and use

CONCLUSIONS: Both percutaneous, endoscopic, large-channel fusion and TLIF had good therapeutic effects in the treatment of degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis. However, compared with the latter, the former was more effective, with better comprehensive efficacy and more obvious benefits for patients, so it’s worthy of clinical promotion and use.

Abstract

Context: Degenerative changes in the lumbar spine more commonly cause spinal stenosis and with the aging of society, its incidence is on the rise. Endoscopic spinal surgery is a minimally invasive technique for decompression. The efficacy of percutaneous, endoscopic, large-channel fusion and transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) need confirmation by more studies.

Objective: The study intended to investigate the clinical efficacy of percutaneous endoscopic large-channel fusion and TLIF in the treatment of degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis, to find the best treatment plan.

Design: The research team performed a retrospective study.

Setting: The study took place at Nanjing Lishui People’s Hospital in Nanjing, Jiangsu Province, PR China.

Participants: Participants were 100 patients with degenerative, lumbar, spinal stenosis who had been admitted to the hospital between October 2018 and October 2022.

Intervention: The research team randomly divided participants into an intervention group and a control group, with 50 participants in each group. The intervention group received percutaneous, endoscopic, large-channel fusion and internal fixation, and the control group received foraminal, lumbar, interbody fusion.

Outcome measures: The research team measured: (1) perioperative indexes, (2) clinical efficacy at a postoperative follow-up at 6 months postintervention, (3) indexes for inflammatory responses at baseline and postintervention, (4) postoperative pain at baseline and at months 3 and 6 postintervention using a visual analog scale (VAS), (6) lumbar function at baseline and months 3 and 6 postintervention using the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) and the Japanese Orthopedic Association (JOA) scale, and (7) complications.

Results: Compared with the control group, the intervention group’s perioperatively related and inflammatory-response indexes were significantly better: (1) amount of bleeding- 112.67 ± 17.38 for the control group and 78.62 ± 10.52 for the intervention group (P = .002); (2) volume of drainage-79.63 ± 14.21 for the control group and 52.18 ± 8.21 for the intervention group (P = .001); (3) ESR at baseline and postintervention-22.41 ± 5.62 and 15.18 ± 5.26, respectively, for the control group and 22.58 ± 5.82 and 10.54 ± 3.18, respectively, for the intervention group, with P = .013 postintervention; and (4) CRP at baseline and postintervention-17.42 ± 3.52 and 13.98 ± 3.65 for the control group, respectively, and 18.65 ± 3.78 and 10.14 ± 2.78 for the intervention group, with P = .008 postintervention; Also, compared to the control group, the intervention group’s: (1) total effective rate was significantly higher (P = .018); (2) incidence of postoperative complications was significantly lower (P = .006); (3) VAS pain score was significantly lower at months 3 and 6, with P = .028 and P = .021, respectively; (4) Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) function score was significantly lower at months 3 and 6, with P = .016 and P = .014, respectively; and (5) postoperative JOA function score was significantly higher at months 3 and 6, with P = .011 and P = .007, respectively.

Conclusions: Both percutaneous, endoscopic, large-channel fusion and TLIF had good therapeutic effects in the treatment of degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis. However, compared with the latter, the former was more effective, with better comprehensive efficacy and more obvious benefits for patients, so it’s worthy of clinical promotion and use.
