	abstract = {Symptomatic lumbar spondylolisthesis is commonly accompanied by spinal stenosis in multiple segments. These pathologies are routinely treated by multilevel decompression and instrumented fusion. However, it was hypothesized that a minimally invasive surgery (MIS) fusion in the unstable segment combined with a unilateral laminotomy for bilateral decompression (ULBD) in the adjacent stenotic segment is a biomechanically feasible alternative to a two-level fusion and superior to open laminectomy adjacent to a fused segment. This concept has demonstrated success in a recently published biomechanical cadaver study performed by our group. The present article offers a detailed step by step technical description for an MIS-TLIF (transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion) with adjacent ULBD.},
