60 patients involved were divided into two matched groups; Group A: 30 patients were treated with conventional fenestration laminectomy and discectomy and Group B: 30 patients were treated with microdiscectomy. The age of the patients involved in this study ranged from 19 years old to 46 years old
60 patients involved were divided into two matched groups; Group A: 30 patients were treated with conventional fenestration laminectomy and discectomy and Group B: 30 patients were treated with microdiscectomy. The age of the patients involved in this study ranged from 19 years old to 46 years old. All the patient was suffering from symptomatic lumbar disc herniation L4-5. Each patient was assessed clinically and MRI was done for all the patients to prove clinically, the symptomatic lumbar disc herniation which was present in all patients.

The purpose of this study is to compare a standard surgical procedure, open surgical microdiscectomy, used primarily to relieve leg pain and repair disc herniation to a newer surgical proc...
This study is to evaluate the effectiveness of a single-dose intervertebral disc injection of SI-6603 in subjects with lumbar disc herniation (LDH)
The aim of the study is to determine the effects of clinical Pilates Exercises on the level of pain, functional status, flexibility, static and dynamic endurance of the truncus muscles and...
This study is to compare the clinical outcome between the biportal endoscopic discectomy and microdiscectomy in herniated intervertebral disc of lumbar spine
Patients with lumbar disc herniation suffer from pain and morbidity. Surgical intervetion can be a quick and effective relief, however some individuals experience less favorable outcome. ...
Intradural disc herniation (IDH) is defined as the displacement of the inter-vertebral disc nucleus pulposus into the dural sac. In this lumbar lesion, the affected level differs from that of a tradit...
Endoscopic discectomy (ED) has been advocated as a less-invasive alternative to open microdiscectomy (OM) and tubular microdiscectomy (TM) for lumbar disc herniations, with the potential to decrease p...
Few studies describe long-term functional outcomes of pediatric patients who have undergone lumbar microdiscectomy (LMD) because of the rarity of pediatric disc herniation and the short follow-up peri...
Lumbar disc herniation (LDH) can affect lower limb muscle function resulting in an abnormal gait. This study aims to use surface electromyography (SEMG) to evaluate patients with L4/L5 and L5/S1 LDH t...
Epidermoid cysts (ECs) account for 0.5 -1% of all spinal tumors. They can be congenital or acquired. Acquired spinal ECs are extremely rare and are mostly caused by trauma, or secondary to iatrogenic ...
An INTERVERTEBRAL DISC in which the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS has protruded through surrounding ANNULUS FIBROSUS. This occurs most frequently in the lower lumbar region.
The replacement of intervertebral discs in the spinal column with artificial devices. The procedure is done in the lumbar or cervical spine to relieve severe pain resulting from INTERVERTEBRAL DISC DEGENERATION.
The dissolving of the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS, the semi-gelatinous tissue of a displaced INTERVERTEBRAL DISC. It is usually achieved by the direct injection of a proteolytic enzyme, especially CHYMOPAPAIN, into the herniated disc.
Fibrocartilage inner core of the intervertebral disc. Prolapsed or bulged nucleus pulposus leads to INTERVERTEBRAL DISC DISPLACEMENT while proliferation of cells in the nucleus pulposus is associated with INTERVERTEBRAL DISC DEGENERATION.
Degenerative changes in the INTERVERTEBRAL DISC due to aging or structural damage, especially to the vertebral end-plates.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
