Indications for Endoscopic Lumbar Interbody Fusion
EndoLIF® Implants stabilize the intervertebral disc space with the aim to support a bony fusion of vertebral bodies in the non-cervical spine. The cages can be implanted minimally invasively via a posterior or posterolateral access. EndoLIF® Implants always have to be combined with a dorsal fixation, such as the percutaneous screw-rod-system Percusys® by joimax®.
The fusion of vertebral bodies is a final step, nevertheless, this treatment for spinal stabilization can be necessary for the following indication:
- Degenerative disc disease
- Mechanical instability
- Spondylolisthesis grade I or II (Meyerding)
- Secondary instabilities following surgical procedures on the lumbar spine
