Lumbar facet cysts are commonly seen in degenerative lumbar conditions causing stenosis and radiculopathy. Extraforaminal lumbar facet cysts are a rare entity and present a surgical challenge because of their location. Transforaminal endoscopic spine surgery is an emerging technique in spine surgery but has never been described as a treatment option for lumbar radiculopathy in the setting an extraforaminal lumbar facet cyst.

Comparison of percutaneous transforaminal endoscopic lumbar discectomy through unilateral versus bilateral approach for L3/4 or L4/5 lumbar disc herniation with bilateral symptoms: technical notes and a prospective randomized study.
In this study, the authors described the technical notes of percutaneous transforaminal endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PTELD) through unilateral approach and compared PTELD through unilateral versus bi...
Transforaminal endoscopic lumbar approaches involve working in Kambin's triangle. These procedures are performed on awake patients or under general anesthesia with continuous electromyography (EMG). P...
The optimal management of lumbar synovial cysts (LSC) has always been controversial. Open or minimally invasive partial hemilaminotomy as a direct decompression approach has been widely studied. Where...
To evaluate the feasibility for awake, endoscopic treatment of lumbar pseudarthrosis after a transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF).
Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a common and frequently-occurring disease in the elderly. Percutaneous endoscopic decompression (PED) has become the first choice for the treatment of LSS because of it...
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 aims to evaluate the effect of bone marrow concentration on bone healing and spinal fusion by comparing clinical and imaging outcomes between patients receiving transforaminal l...
The overall purpose of this study is to assess the necessity of lumbar drain placement after endoscopic endonasal approach (EEA) surgery in reducing cerebrospinal fluid leak postoperativel...
43% or so of far lateral lumbar disc herniation (FLLDH) occurred at L5/S1, however, the surgical treatment is still quite challenging. We conducted a modified PELD technique that enable us...
Pancreatic cysts are common, and some pancreas cysts have malignant potential. Usual treatment of these cysts is either observation or surgical removal of part or all of the pancreas. Mini...
Nodular tumor-like lesions or mucoid flesh, arising from tendon sheaths, LIGAMENTS, or JOINT CAPSULE, especially of the hands, wrists, or feet. They are not true cysts as they lack epithelial wall. They are distinguished from SYNOVIAL CYSTS by the lack of communication with a joint cavity or the SYNOVIAL MEMBRANE.
Non-neoplastic tumor-like lesions at joints, developed from the SYNOVIAL MEMBRANE of a joint through the JOINT CAPSULE into the periarticular tissues. They are filled with SYNOVIAL FLUID with a smooth and translucent appearance. A synovial cyst can develop from any joint, but most commonly at the back of the knee, where it is known as POPLITEAL CYST.
Cysts found in the jaws and arising from epithelium involved in tooth formation. They include follicular cysts (e.g., primordial cyst, dentigerous cyst, multilocular cyst), lateral periodontal cysts, and radicular cysts. They may become keratinized (odontogenic keratocysts). Follicular cysts may give rise to ameloblastomas and, in rare cases, undergo malignant transformation.
Changing an operative procedure from an endoscopic surgical procedure to an open approach during the INTRAOPERATIVE PERIOD.
Rare, benign, chronic, progressive metaplasia in which cartilage is formed in the synovial membranes of joints, tendon sheaths, or bursae. Some of the metaplastic foci can become detached producing loose bodies. When the loose bodies undergo secondary calcification, the condition is called synovial osteochondromatosis.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
