approach is often used in combination with open fusion procedures, increasing patient exposure to open surgical risks. 25 A patient's global spinal alignment further determines the surgical approach for DLS. Spinopelvic parameters such as lumbar lordosis, sagittal vertical axis, pelvic tilt, and pelvic incidence can be disrupted in patients with DLS, requiring surgical correction. Osteotomies are often used to restore lumbar lordosis and correct the overall sagittal balance for patients with DLS. 1 , 6 , 8–12 , 14 , 15 , 20 , 22 , 23 , 32 , 34 , 37 , 38 , 42 Posterior

report our initial experience with ETO for the treatment of pediatric basilar invagination and cranial settling. Clinical Materials and Methods We recently described a novel, minimally invasive, endoscopic transcervical approach that can be used to perform odontoidectomy for basilar invagination in adults. 44 Subsequently, we have applied this surgical approach to the treatment of pediatric basilar invagination and cranial settling. The clinical presentation and examination results, imaging findings, operative variables, perioperative course, and subsequent

; anterior, posterior, and combined anterior-posterior approaches were used in 40 (35%), 34 (30%), and 40 (35%) of the patients, respectively. Gross-total resection of the lesion was performed in 22 patients (19%), and 98 (86%) underwent spinal fusion.

presacral schwannoma, and 2) perform a meta-analysis to look for significant differences in local recurrence, estimated blood loss (EBL), and complication rates as a function of both surgical approach and extent of resection (EOR). The main questions we sought to address were: 1) what are the most common presenting symptoms of giant presacral schwannoma; 2) does en bloc resection provide superior recurrence-free survival relative to piecemeal gross-total (GTR) or subtotal resection (STR); 3) do complication rates differ among the available surgical approaches; and 4) does

laminectomy without instrumentation has many disadvantages including a failure to resolve anterior compression and the introduction or exacerbation of spinal instability. Given the shortcomings of decompressive laminectomy without instrumentation, circumferential decompression approaches became more prevalent. Today, surgical approaches are mostly chosen by their practicality in relation to the region of the affected spine (not all levels are equally accessible) and the goals of surgery. For example, metastatic spine lesions occurring ventrally in the subaxial cervical

) ( Table 2 ), with a median age at surgery of 52 years; 55.6% were male. The most common location was the thoracolumbar spine (61.9% of cases), and 50% of patients had instrumentation of 3 or more spinal segments. The surgical approach was posterior alone in 38.9% of cases, anterior alone in 26.6%, and combined in 34.5%. The mortality rate was 3.2%, and the median LOS was 16 days. The percentage of patients who developed at least 1 in-hospital complication was 38.8%. The proportion of patients with spinal TB who required surgery was 23.1%, 20.0%, 13.6%, 16.9%, 23.4%, 25

successful placement of C-2 PSs based solely on anatomical landmarks and extensive dissection, intraoperative fluoroscopy undoubtedly has an important role in PS constructs. The importance of intraoperative fluoroscopy cannot be overemphasized in circumstances where aberrant C-2 architecture precludes a surgical approach dependent on the visualization and spatial orientation of the anatomical landmarks reported in this study. Conclusions Free-hand placement of PSs at C-2 can be accomplished safely and effectively without the use of intraoperative fluoroscopy or
