DOI : 10.5137/1019-5149.JTN.29214-20.2 AIM: To analyze the spinal canal type and spinal structure of patients, to determine appropriate preoperative preparation and surgical procedures to prevent material malposition, which is the most common complication of thoracolumbar posterior transpedicular stabilization (TPTS) and is a determiner of its clinical outcomes.

MATERIAL and METHODS: A total of 214 cases were examined. TPTS procedures carried out on each thoracolumbar spine were evaluated. Twenty parameters were documented and retrospectively examined in each patient.

RESULTS: Laminectomy is not helpful for healing unless there is spinal compression and ligamentotaxis is beneficial for healing. The correlation between the structure of the spinal canal and defective screw delivery found (p<0.05).

CONCLUSION: The spinal structure formed around the canal should be the first form to evaluate while TPTS applications to protect the spinal cord, which is the focal point of the spinal structure.
