Minimally invasive tubular surgery for transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion.

Minimally invasive tubular surgery for transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion.

Neurosurg Focus. 2013 Jul;35 Suppl:Video19

Authors: Kimball J, Yew A, Getachew R, Lu DC

Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) was originally developed as a method for circumferential fusion via a single posterior approach and is now an extremely common procedure for the treatment of lumbar instability. More recently, minimally invasive techniques have been applied to this procedure with the goal of decreasing tissue disruption, blood loss and postoperative patient discomfort. Here we describe a minimally invasive tubular TLIF on a 60-year-old male with radiculopathy from an unstable L4-5 spondylolisthesis. The video can be found here: .
