Aim. The ­authors ­report ­their expe­ri­ence on the par­a­ver­te­bral ret­ro­pleur­ic micro­sur­gery ­approach to the treat­ment of tho­rac­ic ­disc her­ni­a­tion. The ­paper ­describes ­both the ­approach and its ­result and it fur­ther ­expands on the rea­son ­behind the few cas­es of unsat­is­fac­to­ry ­results.
Methods. Twenty-­three ­patients ­were oper­at­ed ­upon for tho­rac­ic ­disc her­ni­a­tion ­between 1994 and 2000. The par­a­ver­te­bral ret­ro­pleur­ic micro­sur­gery ­approach was ­used in ­each.
Results. The ­results ­were ­very sat­is­fac­to­ry in 20 cas­es, ­with all symp­toms com­plete­ly dis­ap­pear­ing. In ­only 3 cas­es we had unsat­is­fac­to­ry ­results.
Conclusion. We ­think ­that the pos­te­ro-lat­er­al ret­ro­pleur­ic ­approach is a ­correct meth­od for the treat­ment of tho­rac­ic ­disc her­ni­a­tion ­because it did not ­cause any sig­nif­i­cant ­bone inter­ven­tion.
