Summary of "Surgical Treatment of Extra-Foraminal Gas Containing Pseudocyst Compressing L5 Nerve Root by Using Unilateral Biportal Endosopy: A Case Report."

Most gaseous lumbar pseudocysts have been previously reported to be located in the spinal canal and successfully treated by several therapeutic methods. By comparison, a gas containing pseudocyst in lumbar extra-foraminal area is very rare. Here, the authors report a case of symptomatic gas containing cyst located in lumbar foramen. It was successfully treated with unilateral biportal endoscopic (UBE) surgery.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Surgical reinnervation of a denervated peripheral target using a healthy donor nerve and/or its proximal stump. The direct connection is usually made to a healthy postlesional distal portion of a non-functioning nerve or implanted directly into denervated muscle or insensitive skin. Nerve sprouts will grow from the transferred nerve into the denervated elements and establish contact between them and the neurons that formerly controlled another area.

A vasodilator that also has bronchodilatory action. It has been employed in the treatment of angina pectoris, in the treatment of asthma, and in conjunction with ultraviolet light A, has been tried in the treatment of vitiligo. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed, p1024)
