Introduction:  Long-term prospective outcomes in patients undergoing minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MITLIF) for debilitating back pain has not been well studied.

Methods:  318 patients (mean age 63, range 19-94) who underwent MITLIF with an average 5 year follow-up (range1 to 7 years), treated for spondylolisthesis (236, 74%) or degenerative disc disease (82, 26%) causing intractable back pain. Health care quality of life measures included visual analog scale (VAS), oswestry disability index (ODI), and short from (SF-36).

Long-term prospective outcomes in patients undergoing minimally-invasive spinal fusion for debilitating back pain have not been well studied. 

318 patients (mean age 63 years, range 19-94) who underwent MITLIF were followed over 7 years. Patients presented with spondylolisthesis (n = 236,

74%), and degenerative disc disease (n = 82, 26%). Health care quality of life measures studied were Visual Analog Scale (VAS), Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), and Short Form-36 (SF36) for 7 years. Other outcomes analyzed included pre- operative co-morbidities, age, bone quality, and complications.

There is currently no biologic therapy to repair or restore a degenerated intervertebral disc. A potential solution may rest with embryonic stem cells (ESCs), which have a potential to grow indefinitely and differentiate into a variety of cell types in vitro. Prior studies have shown that ESCs can be encouraged to differentiate toward specific cell lineages by culture in selective media and specific growth environment.

In this study 43 patients underwent minimally invasive transforminal lumbar interbody fusion (MITLIF) using the Staxx XD expandable interbody device. Preoperative and postoperative morphometric data (intervertebral height, foraminal height, subluxation) was collected based on plain radiographs. A validated full set of Health-related Quality of Life (HRQL) Measures, including Visual Analog Scale(VAS), Oswestry Disability Index (ODI), and SF-36 were also collected preoperativelyand postoperatively.

complication management with mi spine procedures by m perez cruetMick J. Perez-Cruet, M.D., M.S.

Spine surgery as we know it has changed dramatically over the past 2 decades. More patients are undergoing minimally invasive procedures. Surgeons are becoming more comfortable with these procedures, and changes intechnology have led to several new approaches and products to make surgery safer for patients and improve patient outcomes.
