A C-Arm-Free Minimally Invasive Technique for Spinal Surgery: Cervical and Thoracic Spine – Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

The article discusses the advantages of C-arm-free minimally invasive spinal surgery techniques in reducing complications and radiation exposure. The study includes a retrospective analysis of various spinal procedures performed using C-arm-free techniques, including OPLL resection, posterior fossa decompression, cervical pedicle screw fixation, and transdiscal screw fixation for various spinal conditions. The results show that C-arm-free techniques provide precise and high-quality postoperative results, offering sufficient spine alignment and decompression depending on the case. Navigation can assist in the absence of anatomical landmarks, although the surgeon should evaluate the quality of the information provided by the software. The study concludes that navigated C-arm-free techniques are safe, precise, and represent the future of spine surgery

ABSTRACT

Background and Objectives: C-arm-free MIS techniques can offer significantly reduced rates of postoperative complications such as inadequate decompression, blood loss, and instrumentation misplacement. Another advantageous long-term aspect is the notably diminished exposure to radiation, which is known to cause malignant changes. This study emphasizes that, in some cases of spinal conditions that require a procedural intervention, C-arm-free MIS techniques hold stronger indications than open surgeries guided by image intensifiers. Materials and Methods: This study includes a retrospective analysis and review of various cervical and thoracic spinal procedures, performed in our hospital, applying C-arm-free techniques. The course of this study explains the basic steps of the procedures and demonstrates postoperative and intraoperative results. For anterior cervical surgery, we performed OPLL resection, while for posterior cervical surgery, we performed posterior fossa decompression for Chiari malformation, minimally invasive cervical pedicle screw fixation (MICEPS), and modified Goel technique with C1 lateral mass screw for atlantoaxial subluxation. Regarding the thoracic spine, we performed anterior correction for Lenke type 5 scoliosis and transdiscal screw fixation for diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis fractures. Results: C-arm-free techniques are safe procedures that provide precise and high-quality postoperative results by offering sufficient spine alignment and adequate decompression depending on the case. Navigation can offer significant assistance in the absence of normal anatomical landmarks, yet the surgeon should always appraise the quality of the information received from the software. Conclusions: Navigated C-arm-free techniques are safe and precise procedures implemented in the treatment of surgically demanding conditions. They can significantly increase accuracy while decreasing operative time. They represent the advancement in the field of spine surgery and are hailed as the future of the same.
