INTRODUCTION: Cage migration into the retroperitoneal house throughout posterior lumbar interbody fusion not often happens. Right here, we report a affected person who underwent laparoscopic surgical procedure to take away a migrated cage from the retroperitoneal house.
CASE PRESENTATION: A 76-year-old girl had a cage that had migrated into the retroperitoneal house throughout posterior lumbar interbody fusion. On belly CT, the migrated cage appeared on the entrance of the promontorium, slightly below the aortic and vena caval bifurcations. Sooner or later later, the affected person underwent laparoscopic surgical procedure utilizing intraoperative fluoroscopy to extract the migrated cage. The affected person’s postoperative course was uneventful, and he or she was discharged on the fifth postoperative day.
DISCUSSION: A cage that migrates throughout posterior lumbar interbody fusion can have severe penalties. In circumstances the place the affected person stays in steady situation, laparoscopic surgical procedure is a helpful and appropriate methodology for eradicating the cage from the retroperitoneal house.
