Abstract

ABSTRACT
Introduction: TLIF is a very common spinal procedure done for a variety of clinical indications commonly done for
degenerative disc disease. In this procedure, discectomy is done, nerve root is decompressed, neural foramen is
enlarged, disc height is restored and unstable segment is stabilized. In our center, we perform TLIF on regular basis.
Contralateral radiculopathy in the normal limb is a worrisome complication of this procedure. In this study we will be
focusing on the rate, possible explanation and course of contralateral radiculopathy after single sided TLIF.
