Although percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) is an effective treatment for herniated discs, its application in a disc with extensive migration is still challenging. As such, epiduroscopic laser neural decompression (ELND) provides a new view of the epidural space as well as an alternative treatment for a herniated disc and epidural fibrosis. In this paper the authors introduce the novel combination of PELD and ELND for high grade down-migrated disc herniation.An 87-year old woman presented with severe pain radiating down her leg due to high grade down-migrated disc herniation at L4-5...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous full-endoscopic discectomy (PED) is being increasingly used because of its potential to minimalize soft-tissue damage and decrease hospital stay. PED using the interlaminar approach (PED-IL) at L4-L5 is performed by only a few surgeons. To the best of our knowledge, the safety and efficacy of PED-IL at L4-L5, without experience in PED via a transforaminal approach (PED-TF) has not been previously reported. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate initial clinical outcomes and complications of PED-IL at L4-L5 without experience in PED-TF...

Percutaneous endoscopic surgery for the lumbar spine, which was established in the last decade, requires only an 8-mm skin incision and causes minimal damage to the paravertebral muscles; thus, it is considered to be a minimally invasive technique for spinal surgery. It has been used to perform percutaneous endoscopic discectomy via two main approaches: the TF approach is a posterolateral one through the intervertebral foramen and can be done under local anesthesia; the IL approach is a more traditional one through the interlaminar space and is difficult to perform under local anesthesia...

BACKGROUND: The progression of cervical kyphosis due to injury to the facet joints and musculature is a major concern for posterior foraminotomy especially for patients with cervical lordosis of less than 10°. However, cervical hypo-lordosis (cervical lordosis < 10°) may be improved with the alleviation of pain and muscle spasms, which corresponds with the disappearance of a positive Spurling's test. When surgery is necessary, the spontaneous recovery of cervical curvature may be minimally offset using minimally invasive surgical techniques, such as posterior percutaneous endoscopic cervical foraminotomy (P-PECF)...
