Lateral retroperitoneal transpsoas interbody fusion in a patient with achondroplastic dwarfism.

Abstract

The authors present the first reported use of the lateral retroperitoneal transpsoas approach for interbody arthrodesis in a patient with achondroplastic dwarfism. The inherent anatomical abnormalities of the spine present in achondroplastic dwarfism predispose these patients to an increased incidence of spinal deformity as well as neurogenic claudication… (More)
