The posterolateral approaches to the spine is an effective method for the neural decompression and the spinal stabilization. This procedure has an advantages of an one-stage posterolateral decompression-stabilization. We have experienced 8 patients with burst fracture in the thoracolumbar junction. A three-quater prone position was used for patient positioning. No patient showed neurologic deterioration after surgery. Patient positioning and the operative approach are described and illustrated.
