Surgical procedure for thoracic disc herniation and spinal stenosis is relatively uncommon and infrequently demanding. The purpose is to realize adequate decompression with out manipulating the spinal twine. Particular person planning and numerous surgical strategies and approaches are required. This anatomical research examines the feasibility of a novel full-endoscopic uniportal method with a transthoracic retropleural method for decompression of the anterior thoracic spinal canal. Operations had been carried out on three contemporary grownup cadavers. The endoscope used, from RIWOspine, Germany, has a shaft cross-section of 6.9 × 5.9 mm and a 25° view angle. It comprises an eccentric intraendoscopic working channel with a diameter of four.1 mm. A transthoracic retropleural method was used. The anatomical buildings had been dissected and the anterior thoracic epidural house was decompressed. The deliberate steps of the operation had been carried out on all cadavers. The transthoracic retropleural method allowed the goal area to be accessed simply. The anatomical buildings could possibly be recognized and dissected. The anterior thoracic epidural house could possibly be decompressed sufficiently. Utilizing the uniportal full-endoscopic operation method with a transthoracic retropleural method, the anterior thoracic epidural house could be adequately reached. It is a minimally invasive methodology with the recognized benefits of an endoscopic method underneath steady irrigation. The retropleural method permits direct entry. The devices can be found for scientific use and have been established for years in different operations on all the backbone. Clin. Anat., 2018. © 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
