Abstract The transthoracic approach to herniated thoracic discs is an important procedure in the management of these uncommonly encountered lesions. Whereas posterior and posterolateral microsurgical approaches and thoracoscopic procedures have been widely advocated in the recent neurosurgical literature, the transthoracic operation continues to offer significant advantages in appropriately selected cases. The authors discuss the preoperative considerations, relevant anatomical structures, and surgical technique.
