We also found that even with laminectomy and decompression in TLIF we were able to place the cages without compression on dura and nerve roots as compared to PLIF which is usually the procedure used for fusion when decompression is required for stenosis.
Results of clinical trials suggest that the use at PLIF cages having described above parameters is justified from many points of view and contributes to reliable stabilization of damaged spine areas.

New developments in instrumentation have contributed to improved technical applications and outcomes of the PLIF procedure (Sears, 2002).
These images can be created by directly detecting the species of interest using the same PLIF technique implemented for acetone.
Following the US FDA approval, the company will introduce COALESCE for TLIF and PLIF procedures in multiple footprint, height and lordotic angle configurations later this year.
Eminent Spine's thoracolumbar platform consist of: the Cottonmouth[R] ALIF PEEK cage, the Fang Plate[R], the Red Diamondback Rattlesnake[TM] anterior lumbar plate, the Diamondback[R] pedicle screw, the Boa Constrictor[R] cross link connector, the Texas Python[R] PLIF PEEK cage, and the Texas Sidewinder[R] TLIF PEEK cage.
Haid and colleagues performed single-level PLIF on 67 patients with degenerative disc disease.
