15 32, F systemic hypertension T3–10, T-12 mixed T6–10 laminectomy & fusion * 360° = ACD and corpectomy with posterior laminectomy and fusion. † Type of OPLL as classified by the Japanese Investigation Committee on the Ossification of the Spinal Ligaments. See Tsuyama, 1984. Patients underwent the following surgical approaches ( Table 3 ): ACD and fusion with corpectomy, posterior laminectomy with fusion, posterior open-door laminoplasty, and combined anterior corpectomy with posterior laminectomy and fusion (360° approach). The clinical

-term sequelae. Although we recognize that the development of this complication in 2 (29%) of the 7 patients represents a substantial percentage, this incidence is within the expected range reported by other groups performing anterior thoracic decompression surgeries. Little is known about the exact rates of CSF–pleural fistulation after transpleural thoracic resection of transdural disc herniations, given the rare nature of this pathology and the diversity of surgical approaches. That said, Hu et al. 12 recently reported on a series of thoracic decompression surgeries in

Introduction Anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) and transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) procedures achieve lumbar interbody arthrodesis. No recent study has compared improvement in pain and functional disability after both procedures. Whether ALIF or TLIF for treatment of symptomatic L5-S1 spondylolisthesis results in superior post-operative functional outcomes remains unknown. The primary aim of the study was to compare post-operative functional outcomes and complication rates following both surgical approaches. Methods A nationwide, multi
