There is additionally described a method for percutaneous fixation of a pair of vertebrae of a patient, which comprises posterolaterally entering the back of a patient percutaneously with a plurality of pedicle screws (1), screwing each pedicle screw (1) into the medullary canal (2) of the pedicles (3) of adjacent thoracic and/or lumbar vertebrae or the pedicles of the L5 and S1 vertebrae, to a position where the proximal end (1b) thereof lies adjacent the fascia (20) of the patient; inserting pedicle screw linkages (6, 7) under the skin of the back of the patient and detachably securing the linkage means to the proximal ends (1b) of the screws (1) on the same side of the spinous processes of the vertebrae to restrict relative movement between the vertebrae.; There is disclosed a pedicle screw (1) for percutaneous internal fixation of vertebrae, comprising proximal and distal ends (1b, 1a) and sized to enable the distal end (1a) to be screwed into the medullary canal (2) of a pedicle (3) of a vertebrae (4) with the proximal end (1b) thereof lying adjacent the fascia (20) of a patient. There is also disclosed a kit for percutaneous fixation of vertebrae of a patient, comprising a plurality of pedicle screws (1) of different sizes, yet of a size to enable the distal end (1a) of each screw (1) to be screwed into the medullary canal (2) of a pedicle (3) of a vertebra (4) with the proximal end (16) thereof lying adjacent the fascia (20) of a patient.
