Anamnesis

bullet

The patient came to the clinic 28-October-2007 complaining of neck pain for 2 months with severe left upper limb pain.

bullet

MRI performed 25-November-2007 showing PCD C5-6 with extrusion and occlusion of the left foramen.

bullet

On examination: weak grip and extension of the left hand and the triceps of the left arm. There is hypalgesia of the thumb of the left hand.

bullet

Using ISIS Inomed Highline IOM right carotid scenario, discectomy of the C5-6 was performed with removal of the left sided extrusion.

bullet

Routine closure of the wound.

bullet

Smooth postoperative recovery, with improvement of the power the left upper limb.

Comments:

bullet

More than 2000 cervical discectomies were performed during 29 years and there is no recurrence at all. This fact is coming from the anatomical relationship, which make it feasible to remove all the disc material.

bullet

It is very rare to perform fusion or implanting devices in the disc space , when we are dealing with one level pathology. If there are signs of instability, then it was mandatory to perform fusion.

bullet

Using IOM with carotid scenario, prevent and alarm the surgeon about the possible hidden events in the carotid during traction. Using RLN monitoring is not necessary in single level discectomy, because the plane of dissection is minimal.
