Abstract

Entry into the retroperitoneal space during Minimally Invasive Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion (MI-TLIF) presents a rare possibility of iatrogenic ureteral injury. Rare complications of ureteral injury after previous open posterior spinal surgery have been reported however there is a paucity of reports after a minimally invasive technique. We now describe a case of ureteral injury after MI-TLIF. © 2020 Published by Elsevier Inc.
