Table 2 Clinical and radiological results. Regarding clinical results, measurements of vertebral slippage and disc heights using lateral lumbar radiography before and after surgical correction, and low back and leg pain using VAS score and ODI before surgical treatment and at the latest clinical follow-up were performed. Bone union pattern by Proietti classification was evaluated 12 months after surgery, and cage subsidence was examined at the final observation
