The patient for more than 20 years complaining of LBP. The last 40 days he started to complain of right sciatica with agonizing pain and on examination he had almost drop right foot. The patient MRI showed small extrusion of the L4-5 disc with lateral recess syndrome. The patient was advised for conservative treatment, but he told me that all conservative measures failed to improve his condition, for what he was operated.

Right L4-5 hemiflavotomy with right L5 foraminotomy was performed. It was noticeable that the root was severely compressed. Removal of the extrusion and moderate cleaning of the disc space was performed.
