lumbar spine done the same day showing the same
extrusion with severe segmental stenosis.
Using C-arm, the L2-3 level was identified.
Laminectomy of lower 2/3 of L2 and upper third of L3 was
achieved. Intradiscal decompression was achieved
from both sides and the extruded disc was
removed from both sides. Further intradiscal
cleaning of L2-3 disc space. Foraminotomy was
not performed, since the extruded disc was
mainly upward migrating.
Smooth postoperative recovery. The power of
both lower limbs became better.
The patient still has an estimated
postoperative recurrence around 7%, because the disc space
is still not completely shallow.
