Approaching to high lumbar level, the width of laminar decrease and conventional laminectomy for the management of L1-2 or L2-3 disc herniation may cause fracture of inferior articular facets of L1 or L2 vertebrae. We performed anterolateral approach to preserve posterior elements(destruction of which may cause later spinal instability), for the management of high lumbar disc herniation.
