AIM: Each posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) and posterolateral fusion (PLF) are the frequently-used methods to deal with lumbar spondylolithesis. The goal of this meta-analysis is to check the protection and effectiveness between these two strategies.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: The a number of databases had been used to seek for the related research, and full-text articles concerned within the comparability between PLIF and PLF had been reviewed. Overview Supervisor 5.zero was adopted to estimate the results of the outcomes amongst chosen articles. Forest plots, sensitivity evaluation and bias evaluation for the articles included had been additionally carried out.
RESULTS: Lastly, 11 related research had been ultimately happy the included standards. The meta-analysis advised that there was no important distinction of the scientific end result, fusion charge, complication charge and blood loss (RR = 1.07, 95%CI [0.97, 1.17], P = zero.16; RR = zero.84, 95%CI [0.49, 1.45], P = zero.54; RR = 1.07, 95%CI [0.95, 1.21], P = zero.25; SMD = zero.24, 95%CI [-0.50, 0.98], P = zero.52; respectively). No publication bias was noticed on this examine (P > zero.05).
CONCLUSIONS: Each these two procedures present wonderful outcomes for sufferers with spondylolisthesis. There was no important distinction of scientific end result, complication charge, fusion charge and blood loss between PLIF and PLF methods.
