Abstract

We report a modified minimally invasive surgery for thoracic pyogenic spondylitis by single-stage posterior fixation with curettage of the spinal anterior segments and autogenous iliac bone grafting using a separate posterolateral approach. This surgical method avoids contamination of spinal implants by maintaining a muscular barrier from the curettage/grafting site.
