STUDY DESIGN This study retrospectively compares the clinical and radiologic outcomes of unilateral transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) with those of transvertebral screw fixation of the lumbosacral spine in high-grade spondylolisthesis. OBJECTIVE To examine the outcome and perioperative complications of unilateral TLIF and compare those results with Transvertebral Screw Fixation in the treatment of high-grade spondylolisthesis. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA High-grade… CONTINUE READING
