This is a multi-center, prospective, clinical study to assess the clinical application and outcomes of Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression with the MILD® devices in patients with symp...
This is a single-center study evaluating the outcomes of patients with painful lumbar spinal stenosis who were treated with the mild procedure (minimally invasive lumbar decompression. The...
This is a single-center, randomized, prospective, double-blind, crossover clinical study to assess the clinical application and outcomes with mild® devices versus sham in patients with sy...
The purpose of this study is to compare two operation methods on lumbar spinal stenosis; minimal invasive decompression to X-stop. It is a prospective randomized multicenter study includin...
Study Objective: To compare patient outcomes following treatment with either the MILD procedure or epidural steroid injections (ESIs) in patients with painful lumbar spinal stenosis exhibi...
The aim of the study was to evaluate the safety and short-term effects of dynamic stabilization via minimally invasive system for degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis. Patients with degenerative lumbar...
Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a narrowing of the spinal canal due to spinal degeneration, and its main clinical symptom is neurogenic claudication. Surgical treatment is pursued for patients who ...
The diagnosis of a lumbar spinal stenosis demands advanced diagnostic radiologic techniques. In recent decades magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has replaced myelography, now considered an old-fashi...
The surgical management of dumbbell tumors of the lumbar spine remains controversial, because of their large volume and complex location, involving both the spinal canal and the retro peritoneum. Whil...
To compare the efficacy and safety of two different surgical incisions for minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MIS-TLIF) in the management of two-level degenerative lumbar disea...
Tapping of the subarachnoid space in the lumbar region, usually between the third and fourth lumbar vertebrae.
The lumbar and sacral plexuses taken together. The fibers of the lumbosacral plexus originate in the lumbar and upper sacral spinal cord (L1 to S3) and innervate the lower extremities.
A nerve originating in the lumbar spinal cord (usually L2 to L4) and traveling through the lumbar plexus to provide motor innervation to extensors of the thigh and sensory innervation to parts of the thigh, lower leg, and foot, and to the hip and knee joints.
A nerve originating in the lumbar spinal cord (L2 to L4) and traveling through the lumbar plexus to the lower extremity. The obturator nerve provides motor innervation to the adductor muscles of the thigh and cutaneous sensory innervation of the inner thigh.
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.
Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
