Abstract

Purpose Obesity is a global health problem. It increases the risk of surgical complications and re-operations. While both MIS-TLIF and O-TLIF are reported to have comparably good long-term outcomes for non-obese patients, no consensus has been reached for obese patients. Methods A comprehensive search of the published literature was performed: PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science and Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials database in accordance to the PRISMA 2009 checklist. Data were collected with atten- tion to baseline demographics, intra-operative blood loss, duration of surgery, surgical complications, hospitalization stay, VAS and Oswestry disability index (ODI) pre- and postoperatively. Results A total of 863 abstracts were identified from the databases, of which 4 articles were included in the meta-analysis. A total of 430 patients were identified, of which 217(50.5%) underwent the O-TLIF, while 213(49.5%) underwent MIS- TLIF. One hundred and ninety-four (45.1%) patients were males, while 236(54.9%) were females. The average age was 54.8 ± 12.0 years. The pooled BMI was 33.4 ± 4.7 for the open-TLIF group, and 32.7 ± 3.9 for MIS-TLIF group (p = 0.22). When comparing O-TLIF to MIS-TLIF: Patients who underwent O-TLIF had 383 mls more blood loss (95% CI: 329.5–437.4, p < 0.00001), 1.2-day longer
