MIS lumbotomy in L2-L4

Thoracic and lumbar pathologies: Minimally invasive lumbotomy (L2-L4)

Incision site

The exact incision site will depend on the location of the involved level. The disc space L5/S1 cannot be reached with this approach.

A self-retaining retractor system is necessary to allow the exposure of the spine.

It is necessary to confirm the correct level of the approach with fluoroscopy.
