HISTORY

  • The patient is a 47-year-old disabled, obese, female smoker with diabetes and severe low back pain.

PHYSICAL EXAM

  • She had severe low back spasms, stiffness, hamstring tightness and bilateral leg weakness.
PREOPERATIVE IMAGING

Lateral Xray, sagital CT and sagital MRI showing: L5-S1 spondylolisthesis, severe disc collapse, high sacral slope (high angulation of the sacrum), deformity of the vertebral body of L5 and S1 and sclerosis

DIAGNOSIS

  • Lumbar spondylolisthesis with bilateral L5 pars fractures and high sacral slope

SURGERY

  • MIS (minimally invasive surgery) TLIF (transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion) with percutaneous pedicle screws placed between muscle planes
  • 1.5 hours of operative time
  • 10 cc blood loss
POSTOPERATIVE IMAGING

 

OUTCOMES

  • The patient was discharged home the same day as surgery with an immediate improvement of all her symptoms on oral pain medications.
  • In a patient with her characteristics (smoker, diabetic and obese), surgical complications are high. MIS surgery reduces the risks and can be performed with much less pain, no muscle dissection, two separate 2 cm incisions, minimal blood loss and low risks of complications, including infection.
