World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule (WHODAS-II) for Patients With Symptomatic Lumbar Disc Herniation
The main purpose of this study is to determine the measurement characteristics of WHODAS II (World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule), as well as to analyze its correlation with symptomatic lumbar disc herniation (Visual Analog Scale, VAS), disability (Spanish version of the Roland Morris Questionnaire, RMQ), fear avoidance beliefs and attitudes (Spanish version of the FAB Questionnaire, FABQ) and quality of life (SF-12). Measurements will be taken at baseline and 6 days later (day 7).

Tapping of the subarachnoid space in the lumbar region, usually between the third and fourth lumbar vertebrae.
Electrophoresis in which discontinuities in both the voltage and pH gradients are introduced by using buffers of different composition and pH in the different parts of the gel column. The term 'disc' was originally used as an abbreviation for 'discontinuous' referring to the buffers employed, and does not have anything to do with the shape of the separated zones.
The lumbar and sacral plexuses taken together. The fibers of the lumbosacral plexus originate in the lumbar and upper sacral spinal cord (L1 to S3) and innervate the lower extremities.
A nerve originating in the lumbar spinal cord (usually L2 to L4) and traveling through the lumbar plexus to provide motor innervation to extensors of the thigh and sensory innervation to parts of the thigh, lower leg, and foot, and to the hip and knee joints.
A nerve originating in the lumbar spinal cord (L2 to L4) and traveling through the lumbar plexus to the lower extremity. The obturator nerve provides motor innervation to the adductor muscles of the thigh and cutaneous sensory innervation of the inner thigh.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether SI-6603 is effective in the treatment of lumbar disc herniation.
This study tests the effectiveness of different treatments for the three most commonly diagnosed lumbar (lower) spine conditions. The purpose of the study is to learn which of two commonly...
The purpose of this study is to compare a standard surgical procedure, open surgical microdiscectomy, used primarily to relieve leg pain and repair disc herniation to a newer surgical proc...
This study will look at the result of using the FLD device as an artificial lumbar disc. The study will compare the safety and effectiveness of the FLD artificial lumbar disc to an already...
The purpose of this study is to compare patients who underwent decompression/discectomy with pedicle screw fusion to patients who received decompression/discectomy without fusion.
An association between progression of cervical disc degeneration and that of lumbar disc degeneration has been considered to exist. To date, however, this association has not yet been adequately studi...
The purpose of this study is to analyze two methods, skin temperature and electrical skin resistance, to evaluate the sympathetic dysfunction in patients with lumbar disc herniation, aiming to determi...
BACKGROUND: A lumbar disc prolapse is commonly seen in the adult population and as a result, the signs and symptoms are well recognised and easily treated. A disc prolapse, in the adolescent and parti...
BACKGROUND: Lumbar disc herniation may influence patients' daily activities and social interactions; however, no predictive models of disability could be found for patients with lumbar disc herniation...
Intradural lumbar disc herniation is a rare complication of disc disease. The reason for the tearing of the dura matter by a herniated disc is not clearly known. Intradural disc herniations usually oc...
