Abstract

The anterior approach is a well-known surgical technique for the treatment of degenerative diseases of the lumbar spine. Through this approach is possible to perform arthrodesis, arthroplasty, discectomy, corpectomy to treat a lot of degenerative conditions. The ALIF procedure is one of the most widely used technique, and is argued to have biomechanical advantages over posterior approaches for lumbar spinal fusion: restoration of disk height and lumbar lordosis, reduction of listhesis, restoring of coronal and sagittal balance.
