Title

Endoscope-Assisted Extreme-Lateral Interbody Fusion: Preliminary Experience and Technical Note

Authors

Abstract The extreme lateral lumbar interbody fusion (XLIF) technique is safe and effective; however, the deep and tight surgical corridor makes visual identification of important landmark structures, as well as sufficient endplate and contralateral preparation, challenging. In the present study, we analyzed the safety and feasibility of endoscope-assisted (EA) XLIF procedures.
