Percutaneous approach to the upper thoracic spine: optimal patient positioning.

PMID:  19575242     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Percutaneous access to the upper thoracic vertebrae under fluoroscopic guidance is challenging. We describe our positioning technique facilitating optimal visualisation of the high thoracic vertebrae in the prone position. This allows safe practice of kyphoplasty, vertebroplasty and biopsy throughout the upper thoracic spine.
