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). Potential morbidity of this approach includes injury to the exiting and traversing nerve roots since substantial dissection or cauterization of overlying tissues are required for visualization.

The interlaminar contralateral endoscopic lumbar foraminotomy (ICELF) provides access to the foraminal pathology with less violation to facet than the ipsilateral approach. However, it is technically ...

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...
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 ...
Clinical evaluation of percutaneous transforaminal endoscopic discectomy (PTED) and paraspinal minitubular microdiscectomy (PMTM) for lumbar disc herniation: study protocol for a randomised controlled trial.
For sciatica caused by lumbar disc herniation (LDH), the standard surgical technique is conventional microdiscectomy. In recent years, minimally invasive techniques (eg, percutaneous transforaminal en...

The application, via IMPLANTED ELECTRODES, of short bursts of electrical energy in the radiofrequency range, interspersed with pauses in delivery of the current long enough to dissipate the generated heat and avoid heat-induced tissue necrosis.
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.
Food derived from genetically modified organisms (ORGANISMS, GENETICALLY MODIFIED).
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.
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
