06.  08-DECEMBER-2007  ZAYNAB SALEH HAMMAD  54 YEARS  HUGE EXTRUDED DISC L2-3 WITH CENTRAL AND LEFT UPWARD AND LEFT FAR-LATERAL EXTRUSION WITH OA RIGHT KNEE.

 

 
 

Anamnesis

bullet

The patient came to the clinic 05-December-2007 complaining of LBP with bilateral sciatica for 3 years and right knee pain for three months. 

bullet

On examination: the patient limping with exaggerated scoliotic stance, with agonizing sciatica. SLRS was 30 degrees in the right and 45 degrees in the left. There was weak dorsiflexion both feet 4/5 and planterflexion right foot 4/5, with osteoarthritis both knees with pain of the right knee.

bullet

MRI performed 05-December-2007 showing huge extruded and sequestrated disc L2-3 with central and left upward and left far-lateral extrusion.

bullet

Under image-intensifier, the L2-3 was identified and left hemiflavotomy of L2-3 was performed and foraminotomy of left L3 root was achieved. The extruded part was removed lateral to the axilla and the far-lateral pieces were removed and the upward migrating piece was removed separately. Meticulous cleaning of the disc space was done. The epidural fat was absent in the compressed area and the root was in bad shape.

bullet

Routine closure of the wound and smooth postoperative recovery.

Comments:

bullet

The patient has pathological process in the right knee, but considering that the extrusion is a major one, priority for surgical treatment of the PLD L2-3 was given.

bullet

The disc space is shallow, which indicate low recurrence rate.

bullet

The bad shape of the root, could anticipate bad recovery of this root, but elimination of compression could yield good result, considering that the other roots were involved in the process.
