Foraminal decompression using a minimally invasive technique to preserve facet joint stability and function without fusion reportedly improves the radicular symptoms in approximately 80% of patients and is considered one of the good surgical treatment choices for lumbar foraminal or extraforaminal stenosis. However, proper decompression was not possible because of the inability to access the foramen at the L5-S1 level due to prominence of the iliac crest. To overcome this challenge, endoscopy-based minimally invasive spine surgery has recently gained attention...

BACKGROUND: Endoscopy has replaced open surgery, especially in spinal surgery. Among them, image-guided epiduroscopy allows pain generators to be identified, including epidural adhesion, fibrotic tissues, root compression, and spinal stenosis. However, the heavy lead apron worn by pain physicians to avoid exposure to radiation can induce occupational hazards, such as orthopedic complications and radiation-induced cancer. Hence, we developed a robotic system to address these problems. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the feasibility of a robot-controlled epiduroscopic system...

Total en bloc spondylectomy is a surgical technique cutting off tumors of spine and its satellite. Previous studies have shown that this technique could reduce postoperative recurrence rate of spinal tumor, but surgical indications are not unified. Wide application of spinal tumor surgical staging and life expectancy system make it more clear for surgery. However, it is difficult to carry out extensive operation for the characteristics of more bleeding, great difficulty and high risk. As for continuous improvement of TES technology, application of endoscopy and appearance of 3D printing artificial vertebral body could push the operation becoming mature...

Full endoscopy spine surgery is one of the minimally invasive procedures for lumbar spine disease and is especially popular in East Asia. As for the interlaminar approach, lumbar recess stenosis can be manipulated through a uniportal bigger diameter working channel spinal endoscope or a smaller one, or a biportal arthroscope. Each kind of procedure has its advantages and shortcomings. Here, a novel experience in biportal interlaminar approach for lumbar recess stenosis is presented. A smaller uniportal spinal endoscope is adopted for biportal procedures rather than the arthroscope...

Background context: Open laminectomy has been regarded as the standard surgical method up to date in degenerative spinal stenosis or herniation of intervertebral disc. The conventional method may lead to instability and provoke chronic lower back pain by scarifying facet joint, posterior ligamentous complex as well as paraspinal muscle. For this reason, the new technique using an endoscope, which could protect soft tissue and facet joint, recently got spotlight. Purpose: The aim of this study is to introduce a new spinal surgical technique using a 30-degreed endoscopy through bi- or tri- portals and to report the preliminary result of this technique...

Andreas Gösele-Koppenburg
Chronic compartment syndromes are a rare, but frequently overlooked cause of pain in the locomotor system. Their aetiology is still not fully elucidated. There is an imbalance of muscle volume and space in the compartment. Thickening of the fascia and decreased elasticity lead to a pathological increase in pressure in the compartment under load. Chronic compartment syndromes are found in the foot, lower leg, thigh, forearm, hand, and even the spine. Bilateral compartment syndromes are very common (80 %). The main symptoms are pain in the compartment under physical activity...

BACKGROUND AND IMPORTANCE: Cervical foraminal schwannomas commonly originate from spinal nerves that pass through the intervertebral foramen of the cervical vertebrae. Because of the proximity of this type of tumor to the vertebral artery and spinal nerves, surgical management remains a major challenge. Conventional open spine surgery usually requires the removal of the articular process and is supplemented by a simultaneous posterolateral spine fusion surgery. To decrease the associated risks of surgical complications by further reducing invasiveness, percutaneous spinal endoscopy may be used for resection of foraminal spinal neoplasm...

The authors describe a new procedure to detect the tiny dural hole in patients with superficial siderosis (SS) and CSF leakage using a coronary angioscope system for spinal endoscopy and selective CT myelography using a spinal drainage tube. Under fluoroscopy, surgeons inserted the coronary angioscope into the spinal subarachnoid space, similar to the procedure of spinal drainage, and slowly advanced it to the cervical spine. The angioscope clearly showed the small dural hole and injured arachnoid membrane...

Minimal research exists regarding cervical spine disorders in surgeons who perform endoscopy. A confidential on-line survey regarding neck pain (NP), spine disease (SD), and radiculopathy/myelopathy (R/M) was sent to 722 surgeons from a managed, group-based health care system. 415 responded. 361 had endoscopy experience, of whom 24.4% had NP, 20.8% SD, and 3.9% R/M. Most respondents were less than 50 years of age (62.3%), and male (65.7%). Significant risk factors for NP included older age and female, whereas OB/Gyn specialty, increased age and job stress were for SD...

BACKGROUND: Treatment of thoracic spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas (DAVFs) by microsurgery has recently been approached using minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS). The advantages of such an approach are offset by difficult maneuverability within the tubular retractor and by the creation of "tunnel vision" with reduced luminosity to a remote surgical target. OBJECTIVE: To demonstrate how the pitfalls of MISS can be addressed by applying 3-D endoscopy to the minimally invasive approach of spinal DAVFs...
