Abstract

Authors performed extrapedicular screws fixation in thoracic spines. Because patient had very narrow thoracic pedicles, classical transpedicular screws fixation could not be accomplished. In case of narrow thoracic pedicles, extrapedicular screws fixation would be a good alternative technique. We describe here a method for thoracic extrapedicular screws fixation.
