The trans-psoas approach is designed to approach the lumbar disc space and allow good removal of disc material whilst avoiding the posterior neural structures. The anterior and posterior longitudinal ligaments are left intact to provide stability to the disc space but good disc clearance is achievable.

By accessing the spine from the side of the body, XLIF Lateral Lumbar Interbody Fusion eliminates the debilitating effects of cutting back muscles, removing bone, and retracting the neural elements that are typically experienced after a conventional posterior surgical approach PLIF. Additionally, XLIF avoids retraction of internal organs and major blood vessels as is necessary in the conventional anterior surgical approach ALIF to reach the spine.

XLIF is a safe and reproducible approach with minimal disruption, making post-op recovery easier for the patient. The XLIF procedure for lumbar fusion was developed to overcome the obstacles of both anterior front and posterior back approaches to access the spine. XLIF avoids significant musculature disruption by utilizing a natural path from the side of the body to the spine.

The XLIF approach does not require back muscle and bone dissection or nerve retraction; it also allows for a more complete disc removal and predictable implant insertion, compared with traditional posterior procedures.

XLIF also does not require the delicate abdominal exposure or present the same risk of vascular injury as traditional anterior procedures. Because the procedure is less disruptive than conventional posterior or anterior surgery, most patients are able to get up and walk around within a day of the surgery. In general, XLIF surgery results in faster recovery and return to normal activities.

The less-disruptive lateral approach by NuVasive is a breakthrough for spine patients, but it is of particular benefit for active patients who want to return to their active lifestyles more quickly and easily, or those who cannot tolerate a larger, open procedure because of the increased risks of longer anesthesia time, greater blood loss, longer hospitalization, and longer recovery.

Only your doctor can determine whether you are a suitable candidate for this treatment. SAS Journal , Site by GetNetty.

Description of XLIF Surgery

Because nerves exiting the spinal column are close to the psoas muscle and can even run right over the surface of it, it is critical that the surgeon be provided with real-time information about the position of the nerves relative to his instruments. Neuromonitoring, the testing of the nerves during surgery to make sure that they are not harmed or irritated during the process, is a critical part of this procedure. This type of nerve monitoring is known as electromyography or EMG. The NeuroVision probe is designed to detect the position of the nerves to help avoid disturbing them during surgery.
