Summary of "Rare documented case report of a retroperitoneal hernia as a complication to an anterior retroperitoneal spinal exposure."

Anterior retroperitoneal spinal exposures are widely used today for spinal surgeries. Incisional hernias are a documented complication of anterior spine exposures; however, there are no documented cases of hernias into the dissected retroperitoneal space. We presented this exceptionally rare patient's complication to underscores the critical importance of preserving the peritoneum as a biologic barrier during retroperitoneal spine exposures.
