Methods: From 2010-01 to 2015-10, in total, 167 patients with single segmental spondylolisthesis treated by TLIF were included, 79 cases in minimally invasive TLIF (MI-TLIF) group and 88 cases in open TLIF group. The peri-operative parameters of operative time, estimated blood loss and length of postoperative hospital stay was recorded, as well as complications. Visual Analogue Scale (VAS) of low back pain and leg pain, and Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) were used to assess the pain and functional outcomes at preoperatively, 3 months/1 year/2 years/5 years after operation. The radiographic parameters of posterior height of the intervertebral space and segmental lordosis were measured too. 
Results: No significantly difference was found at baseline characteristic data of age, gender ratio, the percentage of degenerative and isthmic spondylolisthesis, the percentage of slip, and segmental distribution between MI-TLIF and open TLIF groups. MI-TLIF group had less estimated intra-operative blood loss (163.7±49.6 mL) than open TLIF group (243.3±70.2 mL, P},
