Abstract

For patients with metastatic disease to the spine there are numerous surgical approaches for decompression of neural elements and maintenance of mechanical stability. The challenge is to accomplish this while minimizing patient morbidity. Here we report on the feasibility and utility of a minimally invasive extreme lateral approach to the mid to high thoracic spine for anterior decompression and fusion.
