Spine surgery has evolved through the years, and developed several techniques allows better results with shorter and less aggressive surgeries. Thoracolumbar spine has several surgical approach, according to the pathology that we need to treat, those may be anterior, such transthoracic, trans pleural - trans diaphragmatic or retroperitoneal, retroperitoneal or trans peritoneal; posterior approach, like transfacetary, transpedicular, lateral extra cavitary, costotransverse, among others, and in some cases, we need to do both, anterior and posterior, whit large and morbid surgeries. Surgeons around the globe, have developed a safe, less morbid technique, that allows perform, in just one surgery, anterior and posterior spine fixation, called posterior vertebrectomy.
