Abstract

Minimally invasive spinal surgery (MISS) for scoliosis correction is a newly developed technique, which currently has technical limitations in the degree of deformity that can be corrected. As techniques, especially the lateral interbody fusion, continue to expand and develop, the limit of deformity that can be corrected slowly diminishes. Within these limitations, MISS deformity correction is an accepted and possible surgical option. Both MISS techniques alone or in a hybrid procedure with osteotomies are an emerging tool in the field of spinal deformity correction.
