Abstract

The purpose of this review is to present the current techniques and outcomes of adult spine deformity (ASD) surgery using the minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) approach. We performed a systemic search of PubMed for literature published through January 2018 with the following terms: "minimally invasive spine surgery,""adult spinal deformity," and "degenerative scoliosis." Of the 138 items that were found through this search, 57 English-language articles were selected for full-text review. According to the severity of the deformity and the symptoms, various types of MISS have been utilized, such as MISS decompression, circumferential MISS, and hybrid surgery. With proper indications, the MISS approach achieved satisfactory clinical and radiological outcomes for ASD, with reduced complication rates. Future studies should aim to define clear indications for the application of various surgical options.
