Study Design. Systematic review and meta-analysis. Objective. Compare minimally invasive surgery (MIS) and open surgery (OS) spinal fusion outcomes for the treatment of spondylolisthesis. Summary of Background Data. OS spinal fusion is an interventional option for patients with spinal disease who have failed conservative therapy. During the past decade, MIS approaches have increasingly been used, with potential benefits of reduced surgical trauma, postoperative pain, and length of hospital stay… 
Posterolateral Fusion Versus Interbody Fusion for Degenerative Spondylolisthesis: Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
There was no statistically significant difference in functional and operative outcomes following fusion alone versus with interbody after fusion against interbody in the treatment of degenerative spondylolisthesis.
Minimally invasive surgery versus open surgery in the treatment of lumbar spondylolisthesis: study protocol of a multicentre, randomised controlled trial (MISOS trial)
TLDR
The design of the MISOS (Minimal Invasive Surgery versus Open Surgery) trial is presented, which is a multicentre, randomised controlled trial in which two surgical techniques are compared in a parallel group design.
Minimally invasive versus open fusion for Grade I degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis: analysis of the Quality Outcomes Database.
TLDR
Significant improvement was found in terms of all functional outcomes in patients undergoing open or MIS fusion for lumbar spondylolisthesis, and change in functional outcome scores for patients undergoing 2-level fusion was notably larger in the MIS cohort for ODI (-27 vs -16, p = 0.1); statistical significance was shown only for changes in NRS-LP scores.
Open Versus Minimally Invasive Surgery for Extraforaminal Lumbar Disk Herniation: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
TLDR
Minimally invasive procedures for EDHs are associated with a similar incidence of complications and reoperation but lower estimated blood loss, shorter operative time, shorter hospital stay, and faster return to work time compared to open surgery.
Surgical Outcomes After Single-Level Endoscopic Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
Initial data reveal that endoscopic TLIF with local anesthesia may offer patients outcomes similar to those in patients undergoing endoscopicTLIF with general anesthesia, with lower operative times and length of stay.
Minimally invasive surgery for low-grade spondylolisthesis: percutaneous endoscopic or oblique lumbar interbody fusion.
TLDR
PELIF minimizes the iatrogenic damages and perioperative risks to a great extent, and seems to be a promising option for the treatment of symptomatic low-grade lumbar spondylolisthesis.
Enhanced recovery after spine surgery: a systematic review.
TLDR
These introductory studies demonstrate the potential of ERAS protocols, when applied to spine procedures, to reduce lengths of stay, accelerate return of function, minimize postoperative pain, and save costs.
Reoperation, Readmission, and Discharge Disposition for Patients With Degenerative Lumbar Pathology Treated With Either Open or Minimally Invasive Techniques: A Single-Center Retrospective Review of 1435 Cases.
TLDR
The use of minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of lumbar spine pathology does not result in increased reoperation or 30- and 90-d readmission rates when compared to open approaches.
Cost-effectiveness of Open Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (OTLIF) versus Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (MITLIF): A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.
TLDR
Results of this study and previous literature suggest that MITLIF is more cost-effective compared to OTLIF, which appears to be expensive interventions when using a threshold of $50,000/QALY.
Modified Facet Joint Fusion for Lumbar Degenerative Disease: Case Series of a Fusion Technique, Clinical Outcomes, and Fusion Rate in 491 Patients.
TLDR
MFF technique achieved satisfactory clinical outcomes and fusion rate and appears to be a promising alternative fusion technique for the treatment of unstable lumbar spondylolisthesis.

Minimally Invasive Versus Open Laminectomy for Lumbar Stenosis: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
TLDR
The pooled evidence suggests ULBD may be associated with less blood loss and shorter stay, with similar complication profiles to the open approach, and warrant verification in large prospective registries and randomized trials.
Comparative Outcomes of Minimally Invasive Surgery for Posterior Lumbar Fusion: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Equivalent operative times were observed between the cohorts, although patients undergoing MIS fusion tended to lose less blood, be exposed to more fluoroscopy, and leave the hospital sooner than their open counterparts.
Perioperative outcomes in minimally invasive lumbar spine surgery: A systematic review.
TLDR
Based on perioperative outcomes data, MIS approach is superior to open approach for TLIF, and direct lateral approaches have insufficient comparative data to establish relative peri operative outcomes.
Minimally invasive versus open transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion: a meta-analysis based on the current evidence
TLDR
Based on the available evidence, MI-TLIF for degenerative lumbar diseases might lead to better patient-based outcomes, but extra efforts are needed to reduce its intraoperative radiation exposure.
Minimally Invasive versus Open Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion: A Systematic Review
TLDR
Based on the available evidence, MIS PLIF might lead to better perioperative parameters, but there was little evidence for improved patient-reported outcomes in the MIS groups, and Randomized controlled trials are needed to compare these two surgical techniques.
Cost-utility analysis of posterior minimally invasive fusion compared with conventional open fusion for lumbar spondylolisthesis
TLDR
MIS posterior fusion for spondylolisthesis does reduce blood loss, transfusion requirements, and LOS and the cost utility of the MIS technique was considered comparable to that of the open technique.
Complications Associated With the Initial Learning Curve of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery: A Systematic Review
TLDR
The quantitative assessment of the procedural learning curve for MIS techniques for the spine remains challenging because the MIS techniques have different learning curves and because they have not been assessed in a consistent manner across studies.
Comparison of minimally invasive fusion and instrumentation versus open surgery for severe stenotic spondylolisthesis with high-grade facet joint osteoarthritis
TLDR
Minimally invasive surgery for severe SDS leads to adequate and safe decompression of lumbar stenosis and results in a faster recovery of symptoms and disability in the early postoperative period.
Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion in Degenerative Disk Disease and Spondylolisthesis Grade I: Minimally Invasive Versus Open Surgery
TLDR
Mini-TLIF is a safe and efficient procedure and, when correctly and carefully performed, can reach good results, similar to those obtained with traditional open surgical techniques, even though it may require a longer surgical time at least during the first stages of the learning curve.
Surgical Outcomes for Minimally Invasive vs Open Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion: An Updated Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.
TLDR
MI-TLIF is associated with reduced blood loss, decreased length of stay, decreased complication rates, and increased radiation exposure, and the rates of fusion and operative time are similar between MI-TL IF and O-TLif.
