Percutaneous Transforaminal Endoscopic Discectomy (PTED) constitutes a minimally invasive surgical technique, principally recruited for the treatment of Lumbar Disc Herniation (LDH). LDH constitutes a frequent spinal ailment in obese. Aim of this prospectively designed study is to evaluate for the first time in the literature the impact of PTED in postoperative parameters of HRQoL in obese patients with LDH within a 2-year follow-up, further thus identifying the effectiveness of PTED.

The aim of the study was to evaluate the short-term efficacy and safety of percutaneous transforaminal endoscopic discectomy (PTED) in the treatment of symptomatic ASD after lumbar fusion in elderly p...
PTED study: design of a non-inferiority, randomised controlled trial to compare the effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of percutaneous transforaminal endoscopic discectomy (PTED) versus open microdiscectomy for patients with a symptomatic lumbar disc herniation.
Lumbosacral radicular syndrome is often caused by a disc herniation. The standard surgical technique to remove a disc herniation is open microdiscectomy. An alternative technique is percutaneous trans...
s: Several studies have compared the clinical efficacy of percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) for L5S1 lumbar disc herniation (LDH) via transforaminal approach and interlaminar approach, ...
Though transforaminal endoscopic discectomy has achieved a satisfactory clinical outcome in the treatment of paracentral disc herniation, it has a high failure rate for treating central disc herniatio...
The endoscopic approach has been introduced in the clinical practice in 1980 with the aim to remove the pro- lapsed disk and free the compressed nerve using the least disruptive surgical technique, as...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the feasibility and efficacy of US-MR image fusion-guided percutaneous transforaminal endoscopic discectomy for the treatment of lumbar disc hernia...
This study is aimed to compare between the results of conventional lumbar discectomy and the newly used technique in our department; endoscopic lumbar discectomy in neurosurgery department...
Evaluate the outcome of micro endoscopic discectomy (MED) by tubular retractors on safety and efficacy of the technique.
Epiduroscopy or spinal endoscopy is the imaging of the epidural space using a percutaneous and minimally invasive fiberoptic imaging device. The definitive diagnosis and treatment of chron...
To demonstrate the analgesic effectiveness of 2 modalities of PEMF treatment compared to sham treatment in patients with persistent pain following lumbar discectomy surgery when treatment ...
Incision of Oddi's sphincter or Vater's ampulla performed by inserting a sphincterotome through an endoscope (DUODENOSCOPE) often following retrograde cholangiography (CHOLANGIOPANCREATOGRAPHY, ENDOSCOPIC RETROGRADE). Endoscopic treatment by sphincterotomy is the preferred method of treatment for patients with retained or recurrent bile duct stones post-cholecystectomy, and for poor-surgical-risk patients that have the gallbladder still present.
Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.
A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.
Fiberoptic endoscopy designed for duodenal observation and cannulation of VATER'S AMPULLA, in order to visualize the pancreatic and biliary duct system by retrograde injection of contrast media. Endoscopic (Vater) papillotomy (SPHINCTEROTOMY, ENDOSCOPIC) may be performed during this procedure.
Two populations of Zucker rats have been cited in research--the "fatty" or obese and the lean. The "fatty" rat (Rattus norvegicus) appeared as a spontaneous mutant. The obese condition appears to be due to a single recessive gene.
Obesity is the condition in which excess fat has accumulated in the body (mostly in subcutaneous tissues). clinical obesity is considered to be present when a person has a BMI of over 30 (Oxford Dictionary of Medicine). It is becoming increasing common i...
