Background: Spinal surgical interventions are generally used in the treatment of various spinal pathologiessuch as vertebral fracture, luxation-subluxation, congenital vertebral deformities, discal hernia, infection andtumor. Minimally invasive spinal surgery contributes to rapid recovery by reducing iatrogenic muscle damageand postoperative pain. In minimally invasive spinal surgery, a new hybrid imaging technique, the exoscope,has been developed in the last decade. The purpose of this study was to report efficacy of the exoscopic microdecompressive spinal surgery (MDSS) and its early postoperative electromyography (EMG) results in dogs.Materials, Methods & Results: The material of this study consisted of the owned 10 dogs with spinal cordinjury resulted from the different etiologies. On the basis of examinations, medical support (fluid therapy, corticosteroid, etc.) was applied to the required dogs. Exoscopic MDSS was performed under general anesthesia indogs. The neurologic, radiologic and EMG examination were completed at pre- and postoperative periods. EMGresults at postoperative 1st week showed increased conduction velocity and amplitudes in 3 cases. There was nosignificant change in a case. And, there was a slight slowdown in conduction velocity and significant decreasein amplitudes in a case. At postoperative 4th week, ther was increased conduction velocity and amplitudes in 8cases and needle EMG showed that spontan muscle activity was normal...(AU)
