    It was performed via a transpedicular approach, including thoracic laminectomy and facetectomy. We did not remove any of the rib for this particular case, but may be necessary in some cases.

    We did not perform any spinal instrumentation or fusion with this procedure due to the inherent stability associated with the thoracic spine.
