OBJECTIVE: Endoscopic surgery for highly migrated lumbar disc extrusions is a challenge even for spine surgeons who are very familiar with utilizing endoscopic techniques. Because of the anatomic constraints involved in transforaminal access in endoscopic surgery, an incomplete removal of a highly migrated disc extrusion can result in some cases. Here the authors describe a new technique for accessing extruded lumbar discs that have migrated into the canal directly through a transpedicular approach...

BACKGROUND: Full-endoscopic operations of lumbar spine are truly minimally invasive surgical procedures. Endoscopic techniques have become the standard in many areas because of the advantages they offer intraoperatively and after surgery. With the interlaminar and transforaminal approach, two full-endoscopic procedures are available for lumbar compressive lesion operations. Our aim was to present and explain all aspects of the full-endoscopic operative technique, and presentation of results of lumbar discectomies and monosegmental decompression in full-endoscopic interlaminar technique performed during 3 year period in comparison with conventional microsurgical operations reported in literature...

BACKGROUND: Avaialable minimal invasive arthro/endoscopic techniques are not compatible with 30 degree arthroscope which orthopedic surgeons uses in knee and shoulder arthroscopy. Minimally invasive "Arthrospine assisted percutaneous technique for lumbar discectomy" is an attempt to allow standard familiar microsurgical discectomy and decompression to be performed using 30° arthroscope used in knee and shoulder arthroscopy with conventional micro discectomy instruments. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 150 patients suffering from lumbar disc herniations were operated between January 2004 and December 2012 by indiginously designed Arthrospine system and were evaluated retrospectively...

UNLABELLED: Lumbar spinal stenosis is one of most common pathologic conditions affecting the lumbar spine. Pain and/or disability in the low back and lower extremities with or without neurogenic claudication may occur as a result of compression of dural sac contents or nerve roots in the narrowed space. Bulging and protrusion, facet joint hypertrophy, and disc herniation combined with osteophytes and arthritic changes of facet joints can be the cause of lumbar spinal stenosis. Medical/interventional treatment may be considered as an initial treatment for patients with mild symptoms of lumbar spinal stenosis...

Percutaneous endoscopic cervical discectomy has evolved as an efficient, minimally invasive spine surgery for cervical disc herniation or radiculopathy. The development of the working channel endoscope makes definitive decompression surgery through a percutaneous approach feasible. There are two methods of approach to target the pathology: anterior and posterior approach. The approach can be determined according to the zone of pathology or the surgeon's preference. The most significant benefits of this endoscopic surgical technique are minimal access tissue trauma and early recovery from the intervention...

Spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas (SDAVFs) are the most common type of spinal arteriovenous malformations, and microsurgical ligation is the treatment modality most frequently used for these lesions. Developments in endoscopic techniques have made endoscopy an even less invasive alternative to routine microsurgical approaches in spine surgery, but endoscopic management of SDAVF or other intradural spinal lesions has not been reported to date. The authors describe the use of a microscope-assisted endoscopic interlaminar approach for the ligation of the proximal draining vein of an L-1 SDAVF in a 58-year-old man...

With the advent of new instrumentation and better imaging techniques that allowed less tissue trauma compared with traditional open procedures, while providing adequate or enhanced visualization of the pathologic site and based upon the successful experience of outpatient spine surgery to assist early ambulation, the trend and evolution toward ''minimal access'' or minimally invasive spine surgery began to develop with greater intensity. Many surgical techniques have flourished with the promise of delivering a safe and efficient alternative, including chemonucleolysis, manual percutaneous discectomy (MPD), automated percutaneous lumbar discectomy (APLD), and percutaneous lumbar laser discectomy (PLLD)...

Percutaneous transforaminal endoscopic discectomy (PTED) is a minimally invasive technique to treat lumbar disk herniation from a lateral approach. Performed under local anesthesia, the incision size for PTED is around 8 mm with no paraspinal muscle cutting or detachment from their insertion. PTED has been associated with less blood loss, faster rehabilitation, and less scarring of tissue than conventional open microdiscectomy. High-quality randomized controlled trials comparing PTED with open microdiscectomy have not been conducted yet...

Transforaminal endoscopic spine surgery has emerged internationally as a minimally invasive technique that can be performed in an awake patient in the outpatient setting. Advances in high-definition endoscopic camera technologies as well as the availability of specialty graspers, reamers, drills, and other instruments that can be used down a working channel endoscope have made a myriad of spine diseases accessible to the minimally invasive spine surgeon. The major challenge inherent in the surgical treatment of thoracic disc disease is that the disc herniation is often ventral to the spinal cord...

Few neurosurgeons practicing today have had training in the field of endoscopic spine surgery during residency or fellowship. Nevertheless, over the past 40 years individual spine surgeons from around the world have worked to create a subfield of minimally invasive spine surgery that takes the point of visualization away from the surgeon's eye or the lens of a microscope and puts it directly at the point of spine pathology. What follows is an attempt to describe the story of how endoscopic spine surgery developed and to credit some of those who have been the biggest contributors to its development...
