Effect of Mixture of Recombinant Human Bone Morphogenic Protein-2 and demineralized Bone Matrix in Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

This article discusses a study that aimed to determine the optimal dose of recombinant-human Bone Morphogenic Protein-2 (rhBMP-2) for successful bone fusion in minimally invasive Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (MIS LLIF). The study involved 93 patients who underwent MIS LLIF using either rhBMP-2 or demineralized bone matrix (DBM) as fusion material. The patients were divided into three groups based on the dosage of rhBMP-2 they received. The results showed that the groups that received rhBMP-2 had significantly higher fusion rates and improvement in back pain and disability compared to the group that received only DBM. However, there was no significant difference in fusion rates between the groups that received different dosages of rhBMP-2. Therefore, the study recommends using 1mg of rhBMP-2 with 5cc of DBM for economic and clinical reasons

: Usage of rhBMP-2 in LLIF surgery leads to early and increased final fusion rates, which can result in faster pain relief and return to daily activities for patients. The benefits of using rhBMP-2 were not significantly different between the groups that received 1mg/5cc and 2mg/5cc of rhBMP-2. Therefore, it is recommended to use 1mg of rhBMP-2 with 5cc of DBM, taking both economic and clinical aspects into consideration.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE: This study aims to determine the optimal dose of recombinant-human Bone Morphogenic Protein-2 (rhBMP-2) for successful bone fusion in minimally invasive Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (MIS LLIF). Previous studies show that rh-BMP is an effective alternative to autologous iliac crest bone graft, but the optimal dose remains uncertain. The study analyzes the fusion rates associated with different rh-BMP doses to provide a recommendation for the optimal dose in MIS LLIF.

METHODS: 93 patients underwent MIS LLIF using demineralized bone matrix (DBM) or a mixture of rhBMP-2 and DBM as fusion material. The group was divided into the following three groups according to the rhBMP-2 usage. Group A (only DBM was used, n: 27). Group B (1mg of rhBMP-2 per 5cc of DBM paste, n: 41). Group C (2mg of rhBMP-2 per 5cc of DBM paste, n: 25). Demographic data, clinical outcomes, postoperative complication and fusion were assessed.

RESULTS: At 12 months post-surgery, the overall fusion rate was 92.3% according to Bridwell fusion grading system. Group B and C, who received rhBMP-2, had significantly higher fusion rates than group A, who received only DBM. However, there was no significant increase in fusion rate when the rhBMP-2 dosage was increased from group B to group C. The group B and C showed significant improvement in back pain and ODI compared to the group A. The incidence of screw loosening was decreased in group B and C, but there was no significant difference in the occurrence of other complications.

: Usage of rhBMP-2 in LLIF surgery leads to early and increased final fusion rates, which can result in faster pain relief and return to daily activities for patients. The benefits of using rhBMP-2 were not significantly different between the groups that received 1mg/5cc and 2mg/5cc of rhBMP-2. Therefore, it is recommended to use 1mg of rhBMP-2 with 5cc of DBM, taking both economic and clinical aspects into consideration.
