Options. 1) In situ posterolateral lumbar fusion is not recommended as a treatment option in patients with lumbar stenosis in whom there is no evidence of preexisting spinal instability or likely iatrogenic instability due to facetectomy. 2) In situ lumbar PLF is recommended as a treatment option in addition to decompression in patients with lumbar stenosis without deformity in whom there is evidence of spinal instability. 3) The addition of pedicle screw instrumentation is not recommended in conjunction with PLF following decompression for lumbar stenosis in patients without spinal deformity or instability.
