Abstract

Minimally invasive posterior cervical instrumentation and fusion may be accomplished with recent advances in access portals as well as in the cervical instrumentation designed specifically for these techniques. These techniques are challenging and require detailed appreciation of the local anatomy as well as fluoroscopic landmarks. In small case series technical feasibility and good clinical outcomes have been shown in the hands of experienced surgeons.
