About The Event
Statement of Need:
Lumbar interbody fusion is a commonly performed surgical procedure for a variety of spinal disorders. Over the years there has been an evolution of approaches to the lumbosacral area for spinal fusions. This course will compare the different approaches currently in use for interbody fusion. Advantages and disadvantages for each approach will be presented and discussed.
At the conclusion of this meeting the participants will:
1. Understand and articulate the advantages and disadvantages of doing a Lumbar fusion using an Anterior to Psoas / Anterior Oblique (OLIF) approach, including discussion of appropriate vascular anatomy
2. Know and articulate the advantages and disadvantages of a lateral approach, including approach difficulties in the lumbosacral spine.
3. Know and articulate the advantages and disadvantages of posterior approaches for lumbar interbody fusions, including PLIF and TLIF techniques.
4. Know and articulate the advantages and disadvantages of Anterior lumbar interbody fusion or ALIF.
