Tuberculosis of the spine is the most common form of skeletal tuberculosis. The most commonly affected site is the dorsolumbar spine, with 20%–41% of spinal tuberculosis cases developing neurological deficits. Tuberculosis of the dorsal spine is most commonly associated with neurological deficits due to the narrower spinal canal and physiological kyphosis, which forces necrotic tissue into the spinal canal. We describe the “Versatile approach”, a novel surgical approach, which is a single incision that combines anterior and posterior approaches for decompression and instrumented circumferential fusion to treat tuberculosis of the thoracic spine.
