To investigate the efficacy and safety of percutaneous transforaminal endoscopic discectomy (PTED) in the treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) combined with osteoporosis.
To evaluate the effects of Ho:YAG laser ablation on preventing postoperative low back pain and improving functional status in patients with lumbar disc herniation (LDH) undergoing transforaminal endos...
The aim of this study is to explore the effect of preoperative planning using mixed reality (MR) on training of percutaneous transforaminal endoscopic discectomy (PTED).
Due to suboptimal pain control under conventional local anesthesia, percutaneous interlaminar endoscopic discectomy is typically performed under general anesthesia. The purpose of this study is to dev...
The purpose of this study was to determine the number of cases needed to achieve the level of competence for Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy (PELD) via the Bi-needle technique using the cumu...
Evaluate the outcome of micro endoscopic discectomy (MED) by tubular retractors on safety and efficacy of the technique.
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...
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...
The purpose of this prospective, single-arm, multicenter study is to confirm the efficacy of the Barricaid® when used as an adjunct to a primary lumbar limited discectomy, to limited disc...
The purpose of this 12-month, prospective, multicenter study is to investigate the effect of annular defect size and other risk factors on reherniation and associated costs in primary lumb...
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.
Surgical removal of large KIDNEY CALCULI by means of a percutaneous nephroscope which is passed into the KIDNEY PELVIS through a track created in the patient's back.
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.
Tapping of the subarachnoid space in the lumbar region, usually between the third and fourth lumbar vertebrae.
