[Multisegmental and minimally invasive dorsal stabilization of thoracic and lumbar vertebral column. Operative technique]

Dorsal stabilization of the thoracic and lumbar vertebral column is still the fundamental technique for acute treatment of unstable vertebral fractures and intervertebral ligament injuries as well as in tumor surgery and the treatment of degenerative and inflammatory diseases. The aim is to achieve the best possible anatomical and axis-correct stabilization of the physical lordosis and kyphosis. This article describes in detail the operational preparation (e.g. necessary imaging, possible positioning of the patient) and procedure (e.g. access, placement of screws and plates, wound closure and postoperative follow-up treatment) and possible complications due to misplaced pedicle screws, the rate of which can possibly be reduced by intraoperative 3D imaging
