Minimally Invasive Anterior Longitudinal Ligament Release


Video footage during the positioning component of this video was obtained from a separate procedure (including a male patient as opposed to the case presented female patient) due to suboptimal video quality and difficulty editing the positional aspect of the case presented patient. The microscopic, endoscopic, and imaging components are all from the case study presented.

This video has been taken from “Anterior Longitudinal Ligament Release From the Minimally Invasive Lateral Retroperitoneal Transpsoas Approach: Technical Note,” an article appearing in a future issue of OPERATIVE NEUROSURGERY. It was submitted by corresponding author Juan Santiago Uribe, MD, from the Department of Neurosurgery at University of South Florida in Tampa, Florida.
