Video: Surgical Management of a Patient With Thoracic Spinal Cord Herniation

Take a look at a new intraoperative video from the September issue of Neurosurgery.

This is an intraoperative video of a left-sided transpedicular approach to the T3-4 disk space. The dura is opened laterally and the spinal cord mobilized to visualize the ventral herniation. Upon identifying the dural defect, the opening is lengthened sharply both superiorly and inferiorly and then packed with dural substitute. The spinal cord demonstrates good reduction at the end of the procedure.

This video has been taken from Surgical Management of a Patient With Thoracic Spinal Cord Herniation: Technical Case Report and Review by Theodore et al.
