Over recent decades, the surgeries for spinal disorders have grown exponentially. Overall reported occurrence of complications in spine surgery is 16.4%. With the increased incidence of complications in spine surgeries, clinicians focused on the prevention of risk factors related to the onset of complications. Here we discuss four case scenarios with varied complications occurring in each case, namely (1) a case of proximal junctional failure, (2) placement of pin or guide wire first in minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion surgery, (3) a case of complication with endoscopic posterior cervical discectomy, and (4) few cases of complications with vertebroplasty.
