  • Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (TLIF) With K2M’s 3-D Printed Interbody—Surgical Technique and Review of Anatomy

    The Neurosurgery Research & Education Foundation (NREF) with support from K2M presents this free webinar entitled, "Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion," led by Sonia V. Eden, MD, FAANS. Free to Members and NonMembers

    Faculty:
     
    Sonia V. Eden, MD, FAANS

    Sonia V. Eden, MD, FAANS, is a neurosurgeon at Neurosurgery of Kalamazoo, part of the Borgess Brain and Spine Institute, in Kalamazoo, Mich. A native of Detroit, Dr. Eden majored in Mechanical Engineering and earned her Bachelor of Science from Yale University in New Haven, Conn. Returning to her home state, she pursued her medical degree and completed her residency training in Neurological Surgery at the University of Michigan. Dr. Eden acquired additional training in minimally invasive spinal surgery with Kevin T. Foley, MD, at the Semmes-Murphey Clinic in Memphis, Tenn.

    Dr. Eden's research interests have primarily focused on racial and socioeconomic disparities in health care and the surgical management of sacroiliac joint dysfunction. 

    Course Description:
     
    Participants will receive an overview of the minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) procedure. TLIF procedure has been well established as a means of spine stabilization and decompression of neural elements in certain patients. The minimally invasive approach allows a spine surgeon to gain access to the spine through a tubular retractor in a paramedian muscle-splitting approach, thereby minimizing intra-operative blood loss, hospital length of stay and post-operative narcotic use. This procedure is indicated for patients suffering from mechanical low back pain and/or radicular leg pain.

    Learning Objectives:
     
    Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
     
    -Recognize the pertinent anatomy and basic anatomic landmarks relevant for the surgical procedure.

    -Demonstrate knowledge of the surgical technique.

    -Identify the nuances of the surgical instrumentation.

    -Outline surgical pearls to help the surgery become seamless.

    -Review patient indications for procedure and gain a deeper understanding of how to identify which patients are optimal candidates for Minimally Invasive surgery.
