TI  - Is Stand-Alone Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion a Safe and Efficacious Treatment 
      for Isthmic Spondylolisthesis of L5-S1?

AB  - STUDY DESIGN: A systematic review. OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to 
      determine the safety and efficacy of stand-alone anterior lumbar interbody fusion
      (sa-ALIF) for the treatment of symptomatic isthmic spondylolisthesis of L5-S1 by 
      assessing the level of available clinical and radiographic evidence. METHODS: A
      systematic review utilizing Medline, Embase, and Scopus online databases was
      undertaken. Clinical, radiographic, and adverse outcome data were extracted for
      the relevant isthmic spondylolisthesis cases with the intention of undertaking a 
      meta-analysis. RESULTS: The database search between January 1980 and December
      2015 yielded 23 articles that concerned sa-ALIF for isthmic spondylolisthesis of 
      L5-S1. Only in 9 of the 23 articles data could be extracted specific to sa-ALIF
      for isthmic spondylolisthesis of L5-S1. There was considerable inconsistency in
      the standards for reporting outcomes of the surgery due to which meta-analysis
      could not be undertaken, and hence each article was reviewed. CONCLUSIONS: There 
      was insufficient evidence to support the safety and efficacy of sa-ALIF for the
      treatment of isthmic spondylolisthesis of L5-S1. Although sa-ALIF is widely
      documented in the literature, there was insufficient evidence to support its use 
      in treating this specific pathology. The unique pathological and anatomical
      situation that isthmic spondylolisthesis of L5-S1 presents must be recognized and
      its treatment with sa-ALIF should be well thought out.
