Thoracic corpectomy for neoplastic vertebral bodies using a navigated lateral extracavitary approach—a single-center consecutive case series: technique and analysis

Abstract

Thoracic myelopathy is often caused by vertebral body fractures resulting from neoplastic conditions, traumatic events, or infectious diseases.
