Spondylolisthesis is the subluxation of a vertebral body over another in the sagittal plane. It represents a particular and relatively frequent mechanism of intervertebral instability. This pathology can be caused by ligamentous laxity, a defect in the pars interarticularis. Results: There was significant reduction in the postoperative pain and disability at 6 months follow up in back and leg and significant reduction of slippage radiological and significant bony union. Conclusion:

The addition of posterofusion instrumentation (Pedicle screws and cage) enhances the ability to obtain a solidarthrodesis, Posterior Lumbar interbody fusion is a excellent procedure for lumbar spondylolisthesis achieved a significant reduction in low back pain and claudication pain and significant amount of radiological reduction and union.
