Posterior lumbar interbody fusion has been widely accepted as one of the surgical procedure to treat clinical problems. However, vertebral endplate subsidence failure has been detected as one of its major problems that might increase the potential of pain and mechanical instability. Therefore, posterior instrumentation (PI) has been introduced alongside with double fusion cages implant to limit segmental movement and to facilitate fusion. Nevertheless, the use of two interbody fusion cages will… CONTINUE READING
