Transpsoas Approaches to the Lumbar Spine: Lateral and Prone – Lumbar Spinal Stenosis

The article discusses the lateral transpsoas approach in minimally invasive spine surgery and its use in achieving robust arthrodesis of the anterior column, indirect decompression, and restoration of lordosis without disrupting the posterior musculature or ligamentous structures. While the lateral decubitus position has traditionally been used for this approach, the prone position has gained popularity as it can reduce operating times for patients who also require posterior pedicle screw fixation. The authors highlight the effectiveness of the transpsoas approach in both positions but emphasize the need for surgeons to be aware of the nuances that distinguish them

ABSTRACT

The lateral transpsoas approach has become fundamental to minimally invasive spine surgery. The large interbody grafts that can be placed through this approach allow for robust arthrodesis of the anterior column, indirect decompression, and restoration of lordosis without disrupting the posterior musculature or ligamentous structures. The lateral decubitus position has traditionally been used for this approach but the prone position has gained popularity because it can reduce operating times for patients who also require posterior pedicle screw fixation. The transpsoas approach can be effectively performed in either position but surgeons should know the nuances that distinguish them.
