Anterior L4-5 Interbody Fusion
Anterior L4-5 Interbody Fusion

This stock medical exhibit illustrates an anterior L4-5 interbody fusion using six images. In the first two images, the initial incision for exposing the L4-5 interspace is shown from the anterior and lateral views. The lateral view pinpoints the important surrounding anatomy including the retracted peritoneal sac, the L4-5 disc to be removed, and the sacrum. The third image demonstrates the removal of the inter-vertebral disc. The fourth image depicts the harvesting of cancellous bone grafts from the iliac crest. Next, the preparation of the interspace site via drilling of the L4-5 endplates is portrayed. Finally, a sagittal view clearly depicts the cage filled with bone grafts and placed in the intervertebral space for fusion.
