Kambin's triangle has become the anatomical location of choice when accessing the lumbar spine to treat degenerative spinal disorders. Currently, lumbar interbody fusion is the most common procedure utilizing this space; however, with the advent of the Kambin's prism definition, advanced imaging modalities, and robotic-assisted techniques, lumbar spine surgery has become increasingly precise and less invasive. These technological and procedural advances have drastically reduced the rate of complications, improved patient outcomes, and expanded the use of the Kambin's triangle to treat different pathologies utilizing cutting-edge techniques. In this review, the authors present the current uses of the Kambin's triangle and the future application of this anatomical corridor in lumbar spine surgery.
