A study presented at the Society for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery 2016 Annual Forum examined the economic impact of oblique lateral lumbar interbody fusions on hospital efficiency.
The study authors examined 69 patients who underwent OLLIF and compared data to 55 patients who underwent open transforaminal lumbar interbody fusions performed by the same surgeon. OLLIF requires a single 10 to 15 mm incision and the technique is designed for faster surgery times.
