Incidental Ureteral Complication in Single-Center Consecutive Oblique Lateral Interbody Fusion Cases – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

The article discusses the use of oblique lateral interbody fusion (OLIF) as a minimally invasive surgical procedure for degenerative lumbar disease. While OLIF has several benefits, it can also lead to complications, including ureteral injury. The article presents two cases of ureteral complications during OLIF procedures, one involving a ureteral injury and the other a suspected ureteral stricture. The authors emphasize the importance of accurately identifying the ureter’s anatomy through preoperative imaging and paying special attention during surgery to prevent such complications

ABSTRACT

Oblique lateral interbody fusion (OLIF) has recently gained widespread use as a minimally invasive surgical procedure for degenerative lumbar disease. OLIF has several advantages but can also lead to several possible complications. For example, although less common, access through the retroperitoneal cavity can cause ureteral injury. Here, we report two cases of ureteral complications that occurred during consecutive OLIF procedures. One involved a 77-year-old female patient who had a double-J catheter inserted due to ureteral injury during surgery, and the other involved a 69-year-old male patient suspected of having a ureteral stricture due to retractor compression. To prevent ureteral complications in OLIF, it is necessary to accurately identify the anatomy of the ureter through preoperative imaging and to pay special attention during surgery.
