Endoscopy-assisted approaches for anterior column reconstruction after pedicle screw fixation of acute traumatic thoracic and lumbar fractures.

OBJECTIVE: Surgical treatment of thoracic and lumbar vertebral body fractures combines instrumentation to stabilize the fracture and an anterior reconstruction to promote fusion of the fractured spine. The aim of the present study was to show that minimally invasive thoracoscopic or endoscopy-assisted approaches to the thoracic and lumbar spine are feasible for anterior column reconstruction.
