Objective: Midline lumbar interbody fusion is performed for treatment of various lumbar degenerative diseases, with good clinical outcomes and few complications. However, there are no large-scale or long-term studies regarding midline lumbar interbody fusion. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical results of midline lumbar interbody fusion and to compare the results according to surgical level.

Methods: Between January 2013 and December 2015, 200 patients with lumbar degenerative disease undergoing midline lumbar interbody fusion surgery were enrolled. The mean patient age was 69.9 ± 15.8 years (range, 40-85 years). The patients were divided into groups according to surgical level: (1) level 1 operation (136 patients), (2) level 2 operation (43 patients), (3) level 3 operation (12 patients), and (4) level 4 or higher (9 patients). Clinical outcomes, fusion rates, and complications were compared among the 4 groups.

Results: All clinical outcomes significantly improved after surgery (measured at 3 years postoperatively) in all groups. Mean fusion rate was 90.5% ± 5.21%. Fusion rate was highest in group I (95.8%) and lowest in group IV (85.2%). There were complications in 17 cases (8.5%). Adjacent segment disease occurred in 16 cases, 5 of which required surgery. Group 1 had 1 case, and group 4 had 4 cases. Screw loosening occurred in 1 case in group 4. There were no cases of infection or mechanical complications.

Conclusion: This large, single-institution, retrospective study demonstrates favorable clinical outcomes after midline lumbar interbody fusion for lumbar degenerative disease regardless of surgical level.
