50 adult patients with chronic low-back pain and single-level degenerative disc disease (L4-L5 or L5-S1) were randomized to either motion restricted treatment through stand-alone anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF), or motion preservation through total disc replacement (TDR). The purpose of this study was to compare muscle atrophy and fatty degeneration of the the posterior paravertebral muscl...
