1. Phillips, Joel T. Comparing Mid Lumbar Interbody Fusion (MIDLF) with Traditional Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF).

Degree: 2017, University of Western Ontario

Mid-lumbar interbody fusion (MIDLF) uses a novel cortical bone trajectory (CBT) screw that provides robust fixation that is less dependent on cancellous bone quality than a traditional pedicle screw. MIDLF also allows for decompression and instrumentation through a smaller central surgical window. The aim of this study is to compare MIDLF with posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) with regards to perioperative complications, operative time, blood loss, length in hospital, radiographic outcomes and post-operative patient functional scores. A retrospective review of our institutional database was performed of patients undergoing MIDLF. Matched PLIF controls were then selected from the same database for comparison. 20 MIDLF patients were identified as were 20 matched PLIF controls. Primary outcomes included perioperative clinical and radiographic measures as well as postoperative patient self-reported function. Results demonstrated no significant difference between the two groups with respect to all clinical, radiographic and patient self-reported measures.
