The hypothesis of this study is that Gabapentin or Amitriptyline has no role in preemptive analgesia to reduce postoperative pain after lumbar diskectomies.
Pain suppression plays a decisive role in patients' satisfaction following lumbar diskectomies, as the psychological component of the pain is a major cause of treatment failure.
Controversy exists whether preemptive prescription of gabapentin, as a known contributor to reduce postoperative pain, has a role in patients undergoing laminectomy for lumbar diskectomy or spinal canal stenosis.The aim of this study is to test the efficacy of amitriptyline and gabapentin in this group of neurosurgical patients.

The objective of the study is to compare the efficacy of gabapentin and amitriptyline for treating neuropathic pain in children in a randomized controlled trial.
The objective of the study is to evaluate the efficacy of a neuroprotective dietary supplement in patients suffering from herniated lumbar disc causing nerve root compression.
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy (vs. placebo) of ozone infiltration and its effectiveness in comparison with micro discectomy in the treatment of lumbar herniated disc...
This randomized controlled clinical trial is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of Bosinji on low back pain and radiating pain of lumbar herniated intervertebral disc (L-HIVD) by...
This study tests the effectiveness of different treatments for the three most commonly diagnosed lumbar (lower) spine conditions. The purpose of the study is to learn which of two commonly...
We describe a case of a 52-year-old male that returned from Togo after 2 years of living in precarious conditions. He was afebrile, complaining of lumbar back pain. MRI showed L3 and L4 vertebral body...
Lumbar herniated disc is a "preference-sensitive" condition, in which the optimal treatment choice is crucially dependent on an informed patient's goals and values. Little is known about decisional co...
Amitriptyline is a tricyclic antidepressant that is metabolized mainly by CYP2C19 and CYP2D6 enzymes. Higher plasma levels of amitriptyline and its active metabolite, nortriptyline, are associated wit...
To investigate the prevalence and outcomes of surgery for lumbar disc herniation in professional football players.
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.
Tricyclic antidepressant with anticholinergic and sedative properties. It appears to prevent the re-uptake of norepinephrine and serotonin at nerve terminals, thus potentiating the action of these neurotransmitters. Amitriptyline also appears to antagonize cholinergic and alpha-1 adrenergic responses to bioactive amines.
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.
An INTERVERTEBRAL DISC in which the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS has protruded through surrounding ANNULUS FIBROSUS. This occurs most frequently in the lower lumbar region.
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
