The protocols of clinical and radiological examination, analysis of treatment of 60 patients with active tuberculous spondylitis have become the clinical material of this study.

The main group included patients (n = 30) with TS of the thoracic and lumbar vertebrae operated with the use of a sliding titanium cage for ventral intercostal spondylodesis.

The comparison group includes patients (n = 30) using traditional approaches to the surgical treatment of the TS.

The comparative study of the effectiveness of treatment of patients of the main and control group with TS showed that the use of the proposed technique in patients of the main group made it possible to significantly improve the results of treatment.

Tuberculosis spondylitis (TS) in the structure of bone-joint tuberculosis in adults occupies a leading position and reaches 40 - 61.5% and it presents the great medical and social problem [2,4,8].
