This paper describes the surgical management of a post-traumatic calcified thoracic disc herniation treated using ultrasonic bone curette SONO-PET®. The case described concerns a young man with a symptomatic calcified thoracic disc herniation, who underwent posterolateral approach and transversoarthropediculectomy. Patient underwent posterolateral approach with excellent postoperative results. Neurophysiological monitoring somato-sensory evoked potential (SSEP) and muscle motor evoked potentials (MMEP), inclination of 30° toward the unaffected side of the operating table, the use of Ultrasonic Bone-Curette SONO-PET® and proper reconstruction of the three floors of the back muscles allows the removal of the disc herniation safer and risk’s free, and less invasive for the patient.
