Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF)

The Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF) procedure is intended to stabilize the spine by causing bone to grow between the two vertebral bodies, thus limiting motion at that level. PLIF achieves spinal fusion in the low back by inserting two cages directly into the disc space and is supplemented by a posterolateral spinal fusion surgery, typically a pedicle screw construct.
