To assess clinical parameters for TLIF and AP reconstructive surgery for lumbar fusion.
(clinical parameters: 1)surgical blood loss, 2)duration of the procedure, 3)length of
METHODS: retrospective analysis -chart review (2002.01~2004.03)
▶Subject number: Total 167 cases
-TLIF: 124 patients (73 minimally invasive + 51 open cases) & AP surgery: 43 patients
-painful degenerative disc disease
1)blood loss, 2)operative times, 3)hospitalization times are listed belows.
>OR Time: OpeRation Time
EBL: Estimated Blood Loss
LOS: Length Of Stay
4)complication rate are as follows.
1)blood loss : AP lumbar interbody fusion (significantly increased) > TLIF
2)operative times: AP lumbar interbody fusion (more longer) > TLIF
3)hospitalization times: AP lumbar interbody fusion (more longer) > TLIF
4)complication rate: AP lumbar interbody fusion (more than 2 times higher) > TLIF
