Inspired Spine releases study on the clinical and radiological outcomes of oblique lateral lumbar interbody fusion

Press releases may be edited for formatting or style
BURNSVILLE, Minn., Feb. 13, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspired Spine's Dr. H. Abbasi has released an innovative study presenting clinical, and radiological outcomes including fusion rates for oblique lateral lumbar interbody fusion (OLLIF). The study establishes, based upon a 300 plus patient population, that OLLIF is an extraordinary, safe, efficient, and efficacious procedure for fusions of the lumbar spine for vertebral levels T12-S1. Going forward, OLLIF should be considered a preferred option for fusions of the lumbar spine.

In previous studies, Dr. Abbasi compared several traditional surgical treatments of degenerative disc and spine disease. These studies included Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF), Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) and Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (MI-TLIF), a recent innovation in MI Spinal Fusion, and Oblique Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion (OLLIF). The study provides significant evidence that OLLIF can be safely employed to treat vertebral levels from T12 to S1 without requiring a large opening. In many cases that require surgery, OLLIF should be considered the preferred treatment method due to the significant benefits it delivers to the patient, including reduced surgery time, shortened hospital stay, and less blood loss.
