Fusion Revisions

Hi Everyone!

I have a quick question for those of you that have undergone revision surgery for failed fusions. To date, they have only done plif's on me when operating and now my surgeon is talking about doing a anterior fusion flipping me over and doing the plif. Did you have the plif the first time? And how did they operate on you the second time? If they did an anterior, what was their reasoning for doing the anterior revision? I am wondering if revisions are typically done for revision work.

Thanks so much for your feedback.
