Special Issue Introduction

Adult spinal deformity (ASD) requires various surgical endeavors to achieve neural decompression and correction of segmental and global balance. However, ASD often related to a high risk of perioperative morbidity due to its extensive surgical field. Minimally invasive spinal surgery (MISS) has been widely adopted for degenerative spine surgery because of little muscle trauma and reduced blood loss. As technology advances, an increasingly large body of techniques and implants are available for use in MISS deformity correction. MISS deformity correction includes anterior, lateral, and posterior techniques that can be tailored to each patient while capturing the strength of each respective technique. To maximize the benefits of a minimally invasive approach without compromising the goals of ASD surgery, surgeons must be selective in choosing which cases are amenable to an MIS approach. Especially under the influence of the COVID-19 epidemic, its technology and development are also facing new challenges.

Minimal Surgery for Spinal Deformity, Endoscopic Fusion for the Lumbar Spine, Endoscopic Spine Surgery, Navigation Guided, Minimally Invasive Lumbar Interbody Fusion, Tubular Decompression, Minimally Invasive TLIF, Degenerative Spondylolisthesis, Robotic Surgery for Spine, Minimal Surgery for Spinal Deformity, Outcomes and Complications are expected to be discussed in this special issue.
