Abstract

Thoracolumbar burst fractures are one of the most common traumatic fractures seen. Management options vary from nonoperative to operative. Among the operative approaches, minimal invasive approaches are gaining popularity. However, all the cases are not suitable for minimal invasive approaches. We discuss the various minimal invasive approaches and their role in the management of thoracolumbar burst fractures.
