The authors present 4 cases of spondylolisthesis, 1 case of spondylolysis and 2 cases of Tbc spondylitis of lower lumbar spine treated by posterior lumbar interbody fusion, with follow-up periods of 3 months to 2 years. All cases had severe low back pain. Other common manifestations were radiating pain to leg. All cases were treated with laminectomy, which included a mesial facetectomy followed by posterior lumbar interbody fusion. The spondylolisthesis was reduced to zero degrees in three cases by the use of vertebral spreader. The fusion rate of intervertebral space in radiological finding was 100%. On case become pain free, 4 cases had mild degree of pain, 1 case had moderate degree of pain and 1 case was not improved. The authors conclude that posterior lumbar interbody fusion is applicable as a surgical treatment of patient with spondylolisthesis and Tbc spondylitis.
