Video-Laparoscopic Exposure of the Lumbar Spine for Ventral Interbody Fusion

Summary

Video-laparoscopic transperitoneal ventral fusion of the lumbar spine using the Bagby-and-Kuslich (BAK) interbody fusion system combines the advantages of the conventional transperitoneal approach with the well-known advantages of minimally invasive surgery. According to our experience it is a safe procedure with an acceptable operating time, little postoperative pain, fast recovery and a short postoperative stay in hospital. Long term results need to be observed and further studies made.
