What is it about?
This article suggests major and minor classification of failure of lumbopelvic fixation, as well as validated the clinical significance of such classification. Major failure of lumbopelvic fixation will require revision, while minor failure will not. This article also reports clinical and radiographic risk factors for major failure, as well as proposes a modified Lenke classification of posterior lumber fusion grading.

There is currently no general consensus regarding classification of failure of lumbopelvic fixation in relation to consideration of revision surgery.
