Over the past 2 decades, posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) with pedicle screw instrumentation has gained popularity. Anterior fusion techniques, however, have evolved over time and currently allow for minimally invasive anterior retroperitoneal diskectomy, interbody graft placement, and rigid instrumentation. A direct comparison of anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) with anterior tension band plating to that of instrumented PLIF has not been previously reported.
