Abstract: Lumbar interbody fusion is an accepted surgical technique to address severe degenerative disc disease, radiculopathy and deformity. Anterior fusion techniques such as ALIF (anterior lumbar interbody fusion) and XLIF (extreme lateral interbody fusion) are relatively newer techniques for interbody fusion compared to more widely used traditional posterior methods (posterior and transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (P/TLIF).
