22-JUNE-2015 AMIRA HASAN BARAKAT SECOND RECURRENCE
OF EXTRUDED DISC L5-S1 WITH LEFT DOWNWARD MIGRATION.
The patient came to the clinic 10-June-2015
complaining of left sciatica the last 2 weeks
down to the lateral malleolus left ankle joint.
The patient was operated twice in November-2014
for the extruded disc L5-S1 with left downward
migration and the recurrence. MRI lumbar spine
done 21-May-2015 showing the huge recurrence of
L5-S1 with left downward migration.
On examination; the patient is limping with
scoliotic stance. SLRS was 60 degrees with pain
in the left. There is weak dorsiflexion left
foot -4/5 and planterflexion same foot 4/5.
The patient was sent for new investigations and
MRI of the lumbar spine confirmed the huge
recurrence and dynamic studies ruled out the
presence of instability.
Using the old incision, foraminotomy of the left
S1 root was done. The root was severely
compressed by bony hard disc extrusion. The
extruded disc was removed in several pieces and
maneuvers until the disc space of L5-S1 and the
extrusion were clean. The root is hanging free.
Smooth postoperative recovery. The power of
the left foot became better.
The patient has second recurrence without
instability. During surgery, it was clear that the
pituitaries could not reach the intradiscal space without
drilling the bone to make the instruments reaching the disc
The estimated postoperative recurrence
now is near 0%.
