Instrumented posterior lumbar interbody fusion (iPLIF) is a common spinal fusion surgical technique for addressing low back pain resulting from degenerative lumbar spine disorders.
It has a theoretical advantage over instrumented posterolateral fusion (iPLF) in that it provides better support for the vertebra along with several potential neurological benefits, but as of Specialty: orthopaedic spine surgeon. In the recently released publication titled “Comparative Cost Effectiveness of coflex Interlaminar Stabilization Versus Instrumented Posterolateral Fusion for the Treatment of Lumbar Stenosis” published in the March edition of the Journal of Clincoeconomics and Outcomes Research, researchers suggest that the coflex Interlaminar.

Fusion is a surgical technique in which one or more of the vertebrae of the spine are united together (“fused”) so that motion no longer occurs between them. The concept of fusion is similar to that of welding in industry.
Spinal fusion surgery, however, does not weld the vertebrae immediately during surgery. Conclusion: Instrumented spinal fusion in dogs with disc-associated CCSM resulted in owner satisfaction and radiographic evidence of interbody spinal.
The body part value assigned is the specific joint being fused. When coding a spinal fusion at L1-L2, the body part value used is “0-Lumbar vertebral joint,” meaning one joint.
If the fusion was performed at L1-L3, then the body part value that is assigned is “1-Lumbar vertebral joint, 2 or more,” meaning two joints. A fusion procedure may be recommended to correct the slip and stabilize the spine, as motion can irritate spinal nerve roots and cause back and leg pain.
Degenerative Disc Disease develops over time and causes one or more intervertebral discs to shrink, which changes the structure and strength of the disc. Recognized internationally as the leading journal in its field, Spine is an international, peer-reviewed, bi-weekly periodical that considers for publication original articles in the field of spine.
It is the leading subspecialty journal for the treatment of spinal disorders. Only original papers are considered for publication with the understanding that they are contributed solely to Spine.

The indications for concomitant instrumented fusion after intradural spinal cord tumor resection is a topic that is not routinely covered when discussing the concepts of spinal biomechanics.

Posterior Cervical Fusion. The bone graft is usually taken from the pelvis at the time of surgery, but some surgeons prefer to use bone graft obtained from a bone bank. Bone graft from a bone bank is taken from organ donors and stored under sterile conditions until needed for operations such as spinal fusion.

Abstract. The overall goal of treating progressive spinal and chest wall deformity in young children is through growth-sparing modalities.
However, there are situations when performing instrumented fusion of the spine with or without a decompression and/or release is : Lawrence G. Lenke. Autograft (sometimes referred to as autologous bone or autogenous bone graft) is taken from the patient and transferred to the portion of the spine to be fused.
During the spinal fusion surgery, a separate surgical procedure is conducted to remove bone from another part of the patient’s body and place it in the area of the spine to be fused. There are different kinds of fusion surgery, including the instrumented fusion which cost about $, or non-instrumented, which runs around $, Research shows that 80% of those who underwent surgery were pleased with the results 8 to 10 years after the procedure.
