Résumé : In the treatment of spondylolisthesis, whatever may be its severity, the author prefers a posterior bone grafting to all other technics. He has adopted an original method inspired by Bosworth's technic. The separated posterior arch (generally L5) is resected. The laminae above and below are cautiously prepared to receive iliac bone grafts (one or two). These are correctly shaped to fit into the prepared receptor site. They are strongly stabilised by two screws. This is the originality of the method. Rest in bed for one month followed by an ambulatory corset is prescribed. The bone healing is generally obtained after 6 months. There have been no complicatons. Physical and professional activities can be resumed with, of course, some caution.
