Herniated thoracic disks are rare entities and their surgical treatment comprises 0.15% to 4% of all disk operations. Surgical approaches have included pediculectomy, costotransversectomy, lateral extracavitary, transthoracic thoracotomy, and thoracoscopy. The authors present a transmanubrial osteomuscular sparing approach for the treatment of T1-T2 thoracic disc hernation that is likely to be the only one described in the literature for this disease so far.
