CHICAGO – In this video from the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons, Zach Pinter, MD, discussed lumbar facet arthroplasty with a total posterior spine system device for patients with spondylolisthesis and stenosis.

“The [total posterior spine system] device is able to recreate normal physiological movement at these segments. There is no loss of movement,” Pinter said. “It is able to stabilize spondylolisthesis and prevent it from getting worse, while also being associated with a low complication profile – it’s similar to [transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion] – and improved patient-reported outcome measures in these patients at 1 year postoperatively,” he added.
