AMIRA HASAN BARAKAT DISKITIS OF L5-S1 AFTER PERFORMED THIRD SURGERY
FOR THE RECURRENT EXTRUSION.
The patient was operated by me
22-June-2015 for second recurrence of L5-S1
with left downward migration. The patient was
doing well until the fourth postoperative day.
After that she started to complain of agonizing
pain in the hips more the left with inability to
stand. She was admitted urgently at the night of
29-June-2015. MRI lumbar spine showed diskitis
of L5-S1 with fluid collection under the skin
and muscles and circumferentially around the
annulus fibrosis. CRP was 198 mg/L and ESR
72 mm/h and WBC 11.000. Samixon 1 gm I/V
was started twice a day.
On examination; the patient cannot walk and in
agonizing pain. The wound externally was looking
acceptable. There is pain upon inspection of the
SIJ both sides more the left. There is no
neurologic deficit. There is no fever.
The old incision was opened and after removing
the subcuticular stitches a gush of orange
fluidly pus came out. It was sent for all
types of CXS. The wound was explored and the
disc space was empty after evacuation of the
fluid. Further distal cleaning of the right side
of the disc space from the left. The disc
material was swollen and friable. Debridement of
the wound and a 1 gm of Vancomycin powder was
inserted to disc cavity. The wound was closed
with less irritant materials and the wound was
closed using nylon 3 zero.
Smooth postoperative recovery. The patient was
sent to the floor.
The patient during the first visit and
after performing the investigations was advised to start
Zinnat 500 twice a day. In the record there are missing data
why I prescribed this antibiotic, but usually I prescribe it
when suspecting a nidus of infection.
