OBJECTIVES Lumbar fusion has been widely used to treat unstable spinal disorders. Methods are evolving from open procedures to less invasive methods to avoid soft tissue trauma. Recently, a soft tissue sparing method to access the axial lumbosacral spine has been developed. It is crucial to determine structures potentially at risk for injury during this fusion technique. The anatomy of the presacral space and safety of the paracoccygeal approach were evaluated through cadaveric dissection and… CONTINUE READING
