Abstract:

The surgical management of lumbosacral tuberculosis with presacral abscess is challenging. Here, we described a case of lumbosacral tuberculosis with a huge abscess in the anterior sacral margin complicated with radicular nerve symptoms treated by minimally invasive procedures. Firstly, the lumbar intervertebral disc was removed by using a spinal endoscope via the posterolateral approach, the nerve decompression was performed, and a drainage tube was inserted. In the second stage procedure, the tuberculosis lesion was removed by using the spinal endoscope via the presacral approach, with the further placement of a drainage tube in the presacral abscess cavity. In the presence of both the front and rear drainage tubes, irrigation and drainage of the infected cavity could be performed regularly. With anti-tuberculosis treatment onboard, the patient recovered well eventually. Our minimally invasive strategy via the anterior presacral space approach combined with a lateral approach minimally invasive surgical approach for the management of complex lumbosacral tuberculosis with huge presacral abscess show cases an alternative but effective treatment for an otherwise challenging disorder to treat surgically.
