Summary

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

Description

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.

An unexpected intradural lumbar disc herniation found during transforaminal endoscopic surgery.

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...

Outcomes of endoscopic discectomy compared with open microdiscectomy and tubular microdiscectomy for lumbar disc herniations: a meta-analysis.

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...

Long-term outcomes of lumbar microdiscectomy in the pediatric population: a large single-institution case series.

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...

Electromyography activities in patients with lower lumbar disc herniation.

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...

Iatrogenic epidermoid cyst of the cauda equina: A late complication of lumbar disc herniation surgery. First case report.

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 ...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
