Degeneration via XLIF Jody A. Rodgers , MD, FACS (Spine Midwest, Inc.); W.B. Rodgers , MD , and Edward J. Gerber 3 2011 30 3 A22 A22 2011 Introduction: The XLIF approach provides a minimally disruptive alternative to anterior column access that allows for large graft placement, disk height restoration, and indirect decompression, while avoiding posterior scar tissue from the previous procedure. Results of ASD treated with XLIF are presented. Methods: Of our single-site consecutive series of 932 XLIF patients, 276

adjacent segment disease (ASD) in the cervical spine. Methods: 888 patients received ACDFs for symptomatic degenerative disease of the cervical spine over the past 22 years at our institution. Of these, 108 patients received repeat ACDF surgeries due to symptomatic ASD. 77 received revision surgeries anteriorly, and 31 received posterior surgeries. Pre, intra, peri, and post-operative data were collected via clinical notes and patient interviews. Patients were followed up for an average of 111.8±76.5 months after the first ACDF. Results: In general, patients

database to identify patients who had undergone noncontiguous anterior cervical fusion. Baseline characteristics and postoperative variables were evaluated. Primary outcome was the presence of symptomatic degeneration at the intermediate segment. Results: Of 2107 total cases, we identified 22 cases of noncontiguous anterior cervical fusion. No patient was found to have symptomatic ASD at the intervening level during the follow-up period. Postoperatively, of 17 patients, neurological improvement was seen in 13 and no change in 4. Overall symptomatic outcome as
