Different approaches for the resection of spinal intradural tumors are used including laminectomy, laminoplasty, hemilaminectomy, etc. In order to reduce spinal surgical trauma and simultaneously achieve complete resection of the lesion with decompression of neural structures we perform minimal invasive lesion-tailored approaches. In this presentation we demonstrate minimal invasive approaches at different spinal levels to various spinal lesions focusing primarily on intradural tumors. Accurate pre-operative planning and meticulous intra-operative microsurgical technique permits treatment of spinal lesions via least invasive surgical approaches. Lesion-tailored microsurgical approaches help to preserve spinal biomechanical integrity, permit complete resection of spinal tumorous lesions with restoration of neural function.
