Traditionally, surgery for a herniated disc involves an open procedure, whereby
the displaced material and the pressure on the nerve root is removed. While the
results in selected patients are predictable, morbidity and complications
associated with open discectomy have been described (1,2). As a result, various
less invasive, percutaneous techniques have been developed. These include
chemonucleolysis, automated percutaneous lumbar discectomy (APLD), laser
discectomy, and ...

However, recent literature revealed that tubular microdiscectomy is equally
invasive as conventional microdiscectomy in terms of CPK and multifidus muscle
atrophy.13 Patients treated with tubular microdiscectomy reported more back
pain during first year after surgery. Some authors introduced percutaneous
lumbar discectomy procedure and its indication has been broadened.14–19 This
kind of percutaneous endoscopic discectomy has been considered as a real
minimal invasive ...

The goal of these MIS approaches is to achieve clinical outcomes similar to those
of standard approaches yet minimize the iatrogenic injury encountered during the
approach to the spine. This chapter reviews current concepts in minimal access
lumbar discectomy. The focus will in large part be on microscopic discectomy, but
we will review percutaneous endoscopic discectomy for extraforaminal
herniations and other new modalities that may be applied in lumbar disc surgery.

7. Percutaneous. Lumbar. Discectomy. Introduction. Discogenic leg pain is a
primary cause of healthcare expenditure. The two entities of back pain and
discogenic leg pain produce more days lost than any other combined illness and
injuries, costing the US healthcare system over $20 billion per year.1,2 Pain from
discogenic sources typically is produced from annular breakdown and annular
tears.3,4 This is commonly treated with a microdiscectomy by orthopedic
surgeons and ...

Newtherapeutic modalities, so called“minimally-invasive” procedures have
emerged, such as chemonucleolysis, automated percutaneous lumbar
discectomy and laser discectomy. The effectiveness of these minimally-invasive
procedures has not yet been clearly evaluated. Open discectomy is the most
effective, but also the most invasive procedure. Chemonucleolysis is less
invasive, but also less effective. Laser-discectomyandautomatedpercutaneous
lumbardiscectomy are still ...
