Full-endoscopic interlaminar discectomy for the treatment of
Thoracic disc herniation (TDH) is an infrequent spinal disease and difficult to treat well. Various surgical approaches and procedures were introduced in many literatures. The authors report a patient with dorsal migrated TDH compressing the spinal cord at T10-11 level.

A 65-year-old male patient presented with complaints of severe paresthesia of both legs and progressive motor weakness for 1 week. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the thoracic and lumbar spine revealed TDH and migration of dorsal side on spinal cord at T10-11 level. Successful decompressive surgery was performed through a posterior interlaminar approach using only endoscopic instruments. After the operation, patient's symptoms, paraparesis and paresthesia, immediately improved.
