Abstract

The performance of transforaminal endoscopic lumbar interbody fusion through a Kambin's triangle approach requires significant modifications when compared to a traditional transforaminal discectomy. Indeed, due to the inherently limited field of view, small working corridor, and need to deploy an adequately sized interbody graft, there are several important technical adaptations which can help improve the efficacy of this approach. In this manuscript, the technical aspects of a percutaneous, endoscopic interbody fusion are discussed in detail.
