The Optimal Patient Position on the Surgical Table for Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion in Adult Spinal Deformity Using Three-Dimensional Computed Tomography: A Retrospective Study – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

The article published in Spine Surg Relat Res discusses the importance of determining the optimal angle for positioning patients on the surgical table during lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) procedures. The study conducted a retrospective analysis of 59 patients with adult spinal deformities, using three-dimensional computed tomography (3DCT) to determine the optimal mean angle (OMA) for patient positioning. The results of the study showed that by rotating patients at the OMA, the rotation of the surgical table can be minimized, ensuring a safer and more efficient surgical procedure. The findings provide valuable insights for improving the success and safety of LLIF surgeries in adult spinal deformity patients

ABSTRACT

INTRODUCTION: Lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) techniques have been extensively used in adult spinal deformity surgery. Preoperative knowledge of the optimal position of the patient on the surgical table is essential for a safe procedure. Therefore, this study aims to determine the optimal angle for positioning the patient on the surgical table during LLIF using three-dimensional computed tomography (3DCT).

METHODS: Data from 59 patients (2 males, 57 females, mean age 66.3±8.6 years) with adult spinal deformities treated by performing corrective spinal surgery were included in this observational retrospective study. Simulated fluoroscopic images were obtained using 3DCT images rotated from the reference position with the spinous process of S1 as the midline to the position with the spinous process in the center of the bilateral pedicle of T12-L5. The rotation angle of each vertebra was measured and defined as the optimal rotation angle (ORA). The angle that bisected the angle between the maximum and minimum ORA was defined as the optimal mean angle of the maximum and minimum ORA (OMA) and considered the optimal angle for the patient’s position on the surgical table, as this position could minimize the rotation angle of the surgical table during surgery. A multiple regression analysis was performed to predict OMA.

RESULTS: Multiple regression analysis revealed the following equation: OMA=1.959+(0.238×lumbar coronal Cobb angle)+(-0.208×sagittal vertical axis).

S: When the patient is placed on the surgical table by rotating them at the OMA, the rotation of the surgical table can be reduced, ensuring a safe and efficient surgical procedure.
