Spatial Computing for preoperative planning and postoperative evaluation of single-position lateral approaches in spinal revision surgery – Lumbar Fusion

Day Case Lumbar Fusion Surgery

The article discusses the use of spatial computing (SC) in a surgical context for perioperative assessment in spinal deformity surgery. The case study involves a 79-year-old male with a history of lumbar pain and lower extremity weakness. The patient underwent a two-staged operation to address thoracic spinal cord compression, myelopathy, pseudoarthrosis, and malalignment. The use of SC allowed for a detailed assessment of the patient’s anatomy, including the psoas muscle, neurovascular structures, graft sizing, ligament configuration, and abdominal viscera. SC provided a comprehensive understanding of the patient’s specific anatomy and improved the preoperative planning for spinal revision surgery

ABSTRACT

Spatial computing (SC) in a surgical context offers reconstructed interactive four-dimensional models of radiological imaging. Preoperative and postoperative assessment with SC can offer more insight into personalized surgical approaches. Spine surgery has benefitted from the use of perioperative SC assessment. Herein, we describe the use of SC to perform a perioperative assessment of a revision spinal deformity surgery. A 79-year-old wheelchair-bound male presented to the neurosurgery clinic with a history of chronic lumbar pain associated with bilateral lower extremity weakness. His surgical history is significant for an L2-L5 lumbar decompression with posterior fixation 1 year prior. On examination, there were signs of thoracic myelopathy. Imaging revealed his previous instrumentation, pseudoarthrosis, and cord compression. We perform a two-staged operation to address the thoracic spinal cord compression and myelopathy, pseudoarthrosis, and malalignment with a lack of global spinal harmony. His imaging is driven by a spatial computing and SC environment and offers support for the diagnosis of his L2-3 and L4-5 pseudoarthrosis on the reconstructed SC-based computed tomography scan. SC enabled the assessment of the configuration of the psoas muscle and course of critical neurovascular structures in addition to graft sizing, trajectory and approach, evaluation of the configuration and durability of the anterior longitudinal ligament, and the overlying abdominal viscera. SC increases the familiarity of the patient’s specific anatomy and enhances perioperative assessment. As such, SC can be used to preoperatively plan for spinal revision surgery.
