The posterior lumbar interbody fusion not only has the advantage of avoiding collapse of the motion segment, it also accomplishes wide decompression of all neural components and distraction of the interverteral disc space. The modified technique of posterior lumbar interbody fusion with preservation of facet and cortical plate alleviates postoperative slippage and settlement. And also, modern improvements in operative illumination, better control of epidural hemorrhage by proper positioning of the patient, and the use of Surgicel as a tamponade in retracting epidural veins and dura definitely improve the technical feasibility of PLIF. Recently we encountered 3 cases of PLIF and the postoperative results were excellent.
