A bullet in the spine is a very uncommon thing for neurosurgeons to have to deal with. The principles of trying to remove a bullet in the spine are the same as when we need to take out a spinal cord tumour. In this video we go through a thoracic laminectomy, opening the dura surrounding the spinal cord, opening the spinal cord and removing the bullet.
This is real surgical footage so please DO NOT VIEW IF YOU ARE UNDER 18.
