Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion Illustration

Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion Illustration

Medical Illustration for Health Dialog.  A Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion (PLIF) is a surgical technique that involves removing a disc and fusing vertebrae together in the lower back. The disc is removed through the right and left sides of the spinal canal and the space is then packed with bone graft and a bone block or cage implant. Devices such as pedicle screws are used to support the fused vertebrae.

This illustration is for a health portal on Health Dialog’s website. This particular portal is on Spinal Stenosis. We created several illustrations and animations on this topic. This is the latest illustration, showing the PLIF procedure.
