In this video, the authors demonstrate a minimally invasive approach and resection of a paraspinal schwannoma. Using an expandable retractor, the authors were able to identify important adjacent bony landmarks and hence visualize and remove this peripheral nerve sheath tumor. While a tubular retractor is commonly used for interbody fusion procedures, the location of the tumor allowed this minimally invasive approach resulting in excellent access, minimal soft-tissue injury, and a short hospital stay. The authors present this approach as a less invasive and yet effective technique for resection of otherwise difficult-to-access nerve lesions.
