The patient  a known diabetic with arterial hypertension, came one year ago complaining of LBP with bilateral sciatica more the right side. MRI performed at that time showed LCS L3-4 and L4-5 with right lateral recess syndrome. The patient had weak dorsi and planterflexion right foot at that time and he was advised to undergo surgery.

The patient disappeared and came after one year and on examination he had weak both feet with intermittent claudication.

Decompressive laminectomy L3-4 and 5 was performed and bilateral foraminotomy of both L4 and L5 roots was performed. It was noticeable that the right foraminae were severely stenosed, for what drilling around the root exit was necessary to eliminate the bony compression upon the roots.

Smooth postoperative recovery.
