L4-L5 in 63 In all the patients, postoperative fibrosis data was found in four cases, and residual disk root was compressed in five patients. In the numeric pain scale we considered zero to be without pain, 1 to 4 points as mild pain, 5 and 6 points as moderate pain, and 7 to 10 points as severe pain.

Percutaneus nucleotomy, for low back pain. Ganglionectomy Sympathectomy Endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy. Percutaneous nucleotomy is a minimally invasive disc decompression technique approved by the Food and Drug Administration FDA in the year12 defining it as any discectomy procedure not requiring open dissection of the thoracolumbar fascia.

Psychosurgery Lobotomy Bilateral cingulotomy Hemispherectomy Anterior temporal lobectomy. The objective of our study is to describe the functional outcomes of patients with contained lumbar disc hernia L4-L5, L5-S1 treated with percutaneous manual nucleotomy PMN after one year of evolution and to demonstrate that it continues to be a viable technique with good results.

We excluded lymbar patients with changes in behavior, calcified or non-contained hernias, narrow lumbar canal, spondylolisthesis, congenital deformities, and instability.


Lumbqr the Oswestry Disability Index, the percentage of disability was considered to be minimal from 0 to 20 points, moderate from 21 to 40 points, severe from 41 to 60 points, disability from 61 to 80 points, and exaggerated for 81 points and discectomiaa. Because this increase was very small, it had no repercussions and no clinical outcome in the pain of the patients. Laminotomy means a significant amount of typically normal bone the lamina is removed from the vertebra, allowing the surgeon to better see and access the area of disc herniation.


However, today it is not widely practiced and whether or not there is clear evidence presented about the superiority of this minimally invasive technique as compared to others is still being debated. This difference is most likely because in our environment the population begins to work at an early age, making our average age lower 14 years.

Magnetic resonance imaging; Failed back surgery syndrome; Spine [surgery]. Clinical guidelines for diagnosis and treatment of lumbar disc herniation with radiculopathy. In our study, the average age of the patients was Transoperatory complications were not reported in any of the two groups. However, other authors have used this for this type of patient, but with percutaneous nucleotomy guided by laser under fluoroscopy, endoscopy, or with dehydration of the intervertebral discs using chemical substances, making a comparison of these studies difficult.

Percutaneous lateral discectomy of the lumbar spine.

Clinical follow-up of 50 patients treated by percutaneous lumbar discectomy. Craniotomy Decompressive craniectomy Cranioplasty. In our review of the literature, we found no studies that evaluated the Oswestry disability index, the numeric pain scale, or the Macnab criteria in patients who underwent mechanical percutaneous nucleotomy for lumbar disc hernia.

Cranial and peripheral nerves Nerve block Vagotomy. The results obtained in the nuclear magnetic resonance image were analyzed, emitting a diagnosis with external evaluation without knowledge of the clinical status of patients, and a correlation with clinical status in both groups was performed.

Arthrotomy Arthroplasty Synovectomy Arthroscopy Replacement joint imaging: Services on Demand Journal.

Given that the studies were conducted in different countries, we could say that in the case of Mexico most women of working age perform not only the physical activities related to their trade or profession, but they also take on other activities such as housework. For the Macnab Criteria, ljmbar were considered to be excellent when the patient presented no pain or restriction of activity, good when there was occasional pain in the lower back or legs sufficient enough to interfere with the patient’s daily life activities or their ability to enjoy leisure time, normal with improved functional capacity but with intermittent pain severe enough to limit or modify work or leisure activities, and poor when there was no improvement or the improvement was not enough to permit increased activity and a new surgical intervention may be necessary.
