Operative Outcome of Instrumented Posterior Spinal Fusion with Free Bone Graft in Symptomatic Isthmic Lumbosacral Spondylolisthesis in Adults
Annals of International medical and Dental Research
ISpondylolisthesis is defined as anterior or posterior slipping of one segment of the spine on the next lower segment. The mainstay of surgical treatment for adult patients with low-grade acquired spondylolytic spondylolisthesis is fusion, with or without decompression. Objectives: To study the safety, efficacy and functional outcome of surgical management of lumbo-sacral spondylolisthesis with pedicle screw fixation, and free bone grafting, and its associated complications. Methods: 10 adult
... Methods: 10 adult patients with lumbosacral spondylolisthesis treated by instrumented posterior spinal fusion with free iliac chips bone graft and their followup with functional and radiological parameters. Results: Following operation 5 patients(50%) having excellent results & 2 patients(20%) have good results. Conclusion: Instrumented posterior fusion with free graft is a good option for symptomatic lumbosacral spondylolisthesis and also has added advantages of correction of olisthesis, three column stabilization and early mobilization.
