BACKGROUND: Many patients suffer from radiculopathy and low back pain due to lumbar disc hernia. Transforaminal percutaneous endoscopic discectomy (TPED) is a minimally invasive method that accesses the disc pathology through the intervertebral foramen. Health-related quality of life (HRQoL) has been previously assessed for this method. However, a possible effect of the level of operation on the postoperative progress of HRQoL remains undefined. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of the level of operation on HRQoL, following TPED...

BACKGROUND: Lumbar disc herniation is a major cause of back pain and sciatica. The surgical management of lumbar disc prolapse has evolved from exploratory laminectomy to percutaneous endoscopic discectomy. Percutaneous endoscopic discectomy is the least invasive procedure for lumbar disc prolapse. The aim of this study was to analyze the clinical outcome, quality of life, neurologic function, and complications. MATERIALS AND METHODS: One hundred patients with lumbar disc prolapse who were treated with percutaneous endoscopic discectomy from May 2012 to January 2014 were included in this retrospective study...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgery (MIS) technique is becoming the standard tissue sparing approach for decompression of lumbar central and lateral recess stenosis, intervertebral disc herniation, or any situation that would have required extensive open decompression laminectomy. Full-endoscopic or arthroscopic assisted surgery is arguably the "ultra-MIS" approach to lumbar spinal pathology. Age and body mass index (BMI) are significant risk factors to be considered in full-endoscopic assisted ultra-MIS...

BACKGROUND: The relationship of exiting root and Kambin's triangle is discussed in this article. OBJECTIVE: Transforaminal endoscopic surgery as the gold standard of less invasive lumbar disc surgeries is performed through Kambin's triangle. Existing root damage is one of the most important complication for this type of surgery. Anatomical variations in Kambin's triangle may be the main reason for nerve root damage during endoscopic lumbar disc surgery. METHOD: Kambin's triangle was investigated with surgical views and cadaver studies...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) has been growing in popularity for the treatment of lumbar disc herniation (LDH) due to its irreplaceable advantages over conventional open surgery. Compared with common lumbar disc herniations, discectomy of highly migrated LDH by PELD is known to be very difficult. Highly migrated lumbar disc herniation has long been a challenge for its specific characteristics. Three approaches for PELD have been applied to access a highly migrated LDH, including an interlaminar approach (IL), transforaminal approach (TF), and contralateral transforaminal approach (CTF)...

BACKGROUND: Open lumbar microdiscectomy (OLM) has been considered the gold standard in the management of lumbar disc herniation (LDH) for its favorable outcomes in long-term follow-up. Nowadays, percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) is gaining recognition. However, greatest limitation of studies of PELD is the lack of long-term follow-up outcomes. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the long-term outcomes of PELD in terms of clinical and radiographic findings and revision surgery rate...

BACKGROUND: Transforaminal percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (tPELD) poses great challenges for junior surgeons. Beginners often require repeated attempts using fluoroscopy causing more punctures, which may significantly undermine their confidence and increase the radiation exposure to medical staff and patients. Moreover, the impact of an accurate location on the learning curve of tPELD has not been defined. OBJECTIVE: The study aimed to investigate the impact of an accurate preoperative location method on learning difficulty and fluoroscopy time of tPELD...

OBJECTIVE: Herniated disc tissue removal to decompress the spinal nerve/cauda equina. Minimization of iatrogenic trauma and associated injuries. INDICATIONS: Conservative treatment did not sufficiently improve clinical symptoms. This is true for progressive or persisting neurological deficits, as well as for persisting pain which alters the quality of the patient`s life. Results of surgery are strongly dependent on the preoperative duration of symptoms. Paramount is the "timing" of surgery: poorer surgical results associated with increasing preoperative duration of symptoms...

BACKGROUND: Percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) is a standard technique for the treatment of lumbar disc hernia. Thus far, most surgeons have recommended local anesthesia. However, in clinical practice, some patients experience pain and are unable to cooperate with the surgery during intervertebral foramen hemp expansion. The use of general anesthesia may create a greater risk of complications because of nerve root anomalies; thus, intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring should be utilized...
