Abstract

Posterior and transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF, TLIF) are among the most popular surgical options for lumbar interbody fusion. If non-union occurs with consequent pain and reduced quality of life, revision surgery should correct any previous technical errors, avoiding further complications. The aim of this study was to analyze technical advantages, radiological and clinical outcomes of anterior approaches (ALIF) in case of failed PLIF or TLIF.
