22-JULY-2014 NADIA ALI AL-ANSI 40 YEARS HUGE
EXTRUDED DISC L5-S1 WITH LEFT FORAMINAL OCCLUSION.
The patient came to the clinic 17-July-2014
complaining of LBP for 5 years with left sciatica for
3 years with numbness all toes left foot with
exacerbation last 2 years. MRI lumbar spine done 13-July-2014
showing huge extruded disc L5-S1 with left
On examination; the patient is not limping now with exaggerated scoliotic stance.
SLRS was 80 degrees with pain in the left. There is weak dorsiflexion
left foot -3/5 and planterflexion same foot -4/5.
Using C-arm, the L5-S1 level was identified.
Midline incision. Foraminotomy left S1 root with
preservation of the ligamentum flavum,
reflecting it to the right. . The MICRODISCXS
with VITOM were used to the next steps of
surgery. The huge extruded disc was removed
lateral to the axilla in several pieces. Left sided intradiscal cleaning of L5-S1
disc space. The ligamentum flavum was returned
to place. Routine closure of the wound.
Smooth postoperative recovery. The power of left
foot became normal and the left sciatica
There is still an estimated postoperative
recurrence around 7%, because the disc space height is still
not completely shallow.
This case a good demonstration, that the
ligamentum flavum can be preserved and the surgery can be
proceeded, using the tubular endoscopic facilities.
