BackgroundPrevalent endoscopic spine surgeries have shown limitations especially in spinal stenosis Ahn in Neurosurgery 752:124–133, 2014. Biportal endoscopic surgery is introduced to manage central and foraminal stenosis with its wide range of access angle and clear view.

MethodsThe authors provide an introduction of this technique followed by a description of the surgical anatomy with discussion on its indications and advantages. In particular, tricks to avoid complications are also presented.

ConclusionsEffective circumferential and focal decompression were achieved in most cases without damage to the spinal structural integrity with preservation of muscular and ligamentous attachments. The biportal endoscopic spinal surgery BESS may be safely used as an alternative minimally invasive procedure for lumbar spinal stenosis Figs. 1 and 2.
