Failed Anterior Lumbar Fusion with Additional Posterior Laminectomy and Fusion
Failed Anterior Lumbar Fusion with Additional Posterior Laminectomy and Fusion

This stock medical exhibit begins with one sagittal (side cut-away) view of the lower lumbar spine. This image clearly reveals the fusion cages previously placed at the L4-5 and L5-S1 levels and also show that these interspaces have failed to heal resulting in a pseudoarthrosis at each level. Next, multiple steps of a posterior laminectomy and fusion procedure are illustrated. These steps include an incision into the lower back, a decompressive laminectomy, the insertion of bone graft and the post-operative condition.
