The effects of oblique lateral interbody fusion (OLIF) and minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MI-TLIF) have not been compared by a meta-analysis. The present study aimed to summarize the radiographic and clinical outcomes of OLIF and MI-TLIF for degenerative lumbar disease.
This article was published in the following journal.

To compare the clinical and radiological outcomes of unilateral pedicle screws (UPS) and bilateral pedicle screws (BPS) fixations after single-level oblique lateral interbody fusion (OLIF) procedures.
This study aimed to evaluate the technical details, clinical effectiveness, and complications of oblique lateral interbody fusion (OLIF) supplemented with anterolateral screw-rod instrumentation in ma...
Lateral interbody fusion (LIF) is an effective adjuvant for CMIS treatment of ASD. Accessing L5-S1 with an oblique lateral approach (OLIF 5-1) allows for an ALIF at the lumbosacral junction without re...
Cross-sectional radio-anatomical study OBJECTIVE.: To analyse the prevalence, size and location of the oblique corridor (OC), and the morphology of the psoas muscle at the L4-L5 disc level.
Extreme lateral interbody fusions (XLIF) and Minimally Invasive (MIS) XLIF were developed to limit the vascular injuries associated with anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF), and minimize the muscu...
This study is undertaken to evaluate the outcomes of Oblique Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (OLLIF). Specifically, the study seeks to measure outcomes on radiological imaging, outcomes re...
The purpose of this study is - to evaluate the effectiveness of MAST techniques for anterior/lateral and posterior approaches in patients with spondylolisthesis (≥ grade I). ...
The purpose of this study is to compare Optecure™ as an autograft extender (treatment) to autograft alone (control) in patients undergoing 1 or 2 level fusion of the lumbar spine(one lev...
The purpose of this study is to assess clinical and radiographic outcomes in patients who undergo three-level oblique lateral lumbar interbody fusion (OLIF) using ViBone, GRAFTON® deminer...
This study is being conducted to evaluate the clinical and radiographic outcomes of three different interbody implant types when used with cancellous allograft chips with BMA or cellular a...
Muscles of the anterolateral abdominal wall consisting of the external oblique and the internal oblique muscles. The external abdominal oblique muscle fibers extend from lower thoracic ribs to the linea alba and the iliac crest. The internal abdominal oblique extend superomedially beneath the external oblique muscles.
The muscles that move the eye. Included in this group are the medial rectus, lateral rectus, superior rectus, inferior rectus, inferior oblique, superior oblique, musculus orbitalis, and levator palpebrae superioris.
Formation or presence of a blood clot (THROMBUS) in the LATERAL SINUSES. This condition is often associated with ear infections (OTITIS MEDIA or MASTOIDITIS) without antibiotic treatment. In developed nations, lateral sinus thrombosis can result from CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA; BRAIN NEOPLASMS; NEUROSURGICAL PROCEDURES; THROMBOPHILIA; and other conditions. Clinical features include HEADACHE; VERTIGO; and increased intracranial pressure.
Use of optic and geometric techniques to enhance radiographic image quality and interpretation. It includes use of microfocal X-ray tubes and intensifying fluoroscopic screens.
The GENETIC RECOMBINATION of the parts of two or more GENES resulting in a gene with different or additional regulatory regions, or a new chimeric gene product. ONCOGENE FUSION includes an ONCOGENE as at least one of the fusion partners and such gene fusions are often detected in neoplastic cells and are transcribed into ONCOGENE FUSION PROTEINS. ARTIFICIAL GENE FUSION is carried out in vitro by RECOMBINANT DNA technology.
