Abstract: Thoracic disc herniation and stenosis are relatively rare, and various symptoms make them difficult to diagnose. Due to the complexity of neural and vascular structure, surgical treatment of thoracic pathology is challenging. Endoscopic spine surgery is an emerging minimally invasive surgical option. Based on wide experience on the cervical and lumbar spine, an endoscopic approach for the thoracic pathology can be performed beyond the learning curve. Transforaminal approach for thoracic disc herniation, endosc… Show more

“…The excellent as well as good outcomes and the advantages of full-endoscopic spine surgery have been proven for the treatment of herniated discs and stenoses in the lumbar and cervical vertebrae (11,17,18). Additionally, the next step after mastering lumbar and cervical endoscopic spinal surgery is managing the thoracic pathology with the full-endoscopic technique (19). Recently, many surgeons worldwide tried various minimally invasive surgery techniques, such as surgery-transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion, video-assisted thoracoscopic surgery, microendoscopic surgery, and full-endoscopic surgery, to treat thoracic pathology (4,9,(20)(21)(22).…”

“…Typically, patients with LSS have a variety of conservative options including pain medications and physical therapy. Surgical intervention for LSS is common in cases when patients begin to see neurological deterioration and symptoms [ 115 , 116 ]. The standard of care has been decompression surgery, requiring significant manipulation of spinal muscles [ 116 ].…”

“…Surgical intervention for LSS is common in cases when patients begin to see neurological deterioration and symptoms [ 115 , 116 ]. The standard of care has been decompression surgery, requiring significant manipulation of spinal muscles [ 116 ]. This approach has been seen to increase the risk of postoperative complications [ 117 ].…”
