Pedicle Subtraction Osteotomy Versus Multilevel Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion and Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion in the Treatment of Adult Spinal Deformity: Trends, Outcomes, and Cost – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

This article is a retrospective cohort study that compares the outcomes of two techniques used in posterior long-segment fusion for correcting sagittal alignment and restoring lumbar lordosis. The techniques examined are pedicle subtraction osteotomy (PSO) with multilevel anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) and lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF). The study found that PSO was associated with a higher risk of surgical complications, such as durotomy and neurological injury, while ALIF/LLIF was associated with increased rates of postoperative radiculopathy. However, there was no significant difference in overall reoperation rates between the two techniques. The study suggests that spine surgeons should carefully select the appropriate technique based on the specific needs of the patient

S: PSO was associated with higher rates of surgical complications compared with anterior approaches. However, there was no significant difference in overall reoperation rates. Spine surgeons should select the optimal technique for a given patient and the type of lordotic correction required.

ABSTRACT

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to compare the outcomes of pedicle subtraction osteotomy (PSO) with multilevel anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) and lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) in posterior long-segment fusion.

BACKGROUND: PSO and ALIF/LLIF are 2 techniques used to restore lumbar lordosis and correct sagittal alignment, with each holding its unique advantages and disadvantages. As there are situations where both techniques can be employed, it is important to compare the risks and benefits of both.

PATIENTS AND METHODS: Patients aged 18 years or older who underwent PSO or multilevel ALIF/LLIF with posterior fusion of 7-12 levels and pelvic fixation were identified. 1:1 propensity score was used to match PSO and ALIF/LLIF cohorts for age, sex, and relevant comorbidities, including smoking status. Logistic regression was used to compare medical and surgical outcomes. Trends and costs were generated for both groups as well.

RESULTS: ALIF/LLIF utilization in posterior long fusion has been steadily increasing since 2010, whereas PSO utilization has significantly dropped since 2017. PSO was associated with an increased risk of durotomy (P < 0.001) and neurological injury (P = 0.018). ALIF/LLIF was associated with increased rates of postoperative radiculopathy (P = 0.005). Patients who underwent PSO had higher rates of pseudarthrosis within 1 and 2 years (P = 0.015; P = 0.010), 1-year hardware failure (P = 0.028), and 2-year reinsertion of instrumentation (P = 0.009). Reoperation rates for both approaches were not statistically different at any time point throughout the 5-year period. In addition, there were no significant differences in both procedural and 90-day postoperative costs.

S: PSO was associated with higher rates of surgical complications compared with anterior approaches. However, there was no significant difference in overall reoperation rates. Spine surgeons should select the optimal technique for a given patient and the type of lordotic correction required.
