Revision lumbar discectomy, given the disruption of anatomic planes, can be a more technically complicated operation. Historically, it may have higher complication rates than first-time microdiscectomy. Recently, minimally invasive tubular discectomy (MITD) has been reported as an equivalent treatment to traditional approaches and may have better utility for revision surgery. A retrospective review of MITDs performed by the senior surgeon (F.A.S.) on 42 patients with single-level, recurrent disk herniation was analyzed...

Background Clinical results and recurrence rate after microendoscopic diskectomy (MED) with long-term follow-up is still unclear, in spite of its relatively long history. Materials and Methods A total of 112 who underwent MED participated in this study. Operative time, blood loss, serum C-reactive protein (CRP), creatine kinase (CK), and visual analog scale (VAS) were evaluated as indexes of surgical invasiveness. The 36-Item Short Form Survey Instrument (SF-36), Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) score, patient satisfaction, and recurrence were also evaluated with a follow-up of at least 5 years...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive direct lateral interbody fusion (MIS-DLIF) is a novel approach for fusions of the lumbar spine. In this proof of concept study, we describe the surgical technique and report our experience and the perioperative outcomes of the first nine patients who underwent this procedure. STUDY DESIGN/SETTING: In this study we establish the safety and efficacy of this approach. MIS-DLIF was performed on 15 spinal levels in nine patients who failed to respond to conservative therapy for the treatment of a re-herniated disk, spondylolisthesis, or other severe disk disease of the lumbar spine...

BACKGROUND: Chemokines have been identified to be involved in the modulation of pain through both peripheral and central mechanisms. However, the role of chemokines in lumbar disk herniation (LDH) with sciatic pain remains unknown. OBJECTIVE: The current study was performed to explore the expression of two most commonly studied chemokines CX3CL1 and CCL2 and assess their associations with clinical severity in LDH patients with sciatic pain. METHODS: The soft tissues around nerve root (STANR), annulus fibrosus (AF), and nucleus pulposus (NP) biopsies were obtained from 36 LDH patients with chronic sciatic pain and 10 scoliosis patients (painless controls)...

Advances in imaging and the development of injection techniques have enabled spinal intervention to become an important tool in managing chronic spinal pain. Epidural steroid injection (ESI) is one of the most widely used spinal interventions; it directly delivers drugs into the epidural space to relieve pain originating from degenerative spine disorders-central canal stenoses and neural foraminal stenoses-or disk herniations. Knowledge of the normal anatomy of the epidural space is essential to perform an effective and safe ESI and to recognize possible complications...

BACKGROUND: Although percutaneous endoscopic technique has been routinely used in the treatment of disk herniation, there are few reports on its application in the management of intraspinal tumors. We present a case report of lumbar epidural angiolipoma that was totally removed by percutaneous endoscopic technique. CASE DESCRIPTION: A 63-year-old man presented with a 4-month history of progressively worsening low back pain. No abnormal neurologic finding was noted on physical examination, and magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated a dorsally located L2-3 epidural lesion, suggestive of a noninfiltrating angiolipoma...

Lumbar disk herniation (LDH) is a degenerative pathology. Although LDH generally occurs without migration of the fragment to the levels above or below, in 10% of the cases, this circumstance might happen. In these cases, the standard interlaminar approach, described by Caspar cannot be performed without laminotomies, interlaminectomies, or partial or total facetectomies. The translaminar approach is the only "tissue-sparing" technique viable in cases of cranially migrated LDH encroaching on the exiting nerve root in the preforaminal zones, for the levels above L2-L3, and in the preforaminal and foraminal zones, for the levels below L3-L4 (L5-S1 included, if a total microdiscectomy is unnecessary)...
