Just wnadering if anyone has knowledge on Dynamic or flexible fusion or stabilization opinions as opposed to the standard bone fusion.

I have DDD at L4-L5 created by pars defect/instabilty.


  • Hi Texas, I had a PLIF L4-5 for spondylolisthesis. My surgeon will not do dynesis for spondy due to the instability issues. I have seen others though that did have it for Spondy. The posterior elements of my L4 were totally seperated and moving all around, so it made sense to me. There are some dynesis patients that post on here, so hopefully they will reply soon. Good luck to you, Sue
