The patient came to the clinic 15-July-2006 complaining of LBP with right sciatica for 10 months with mild scoliotic stance. The patient could walk 6 months ago more than 3 Km, but now cannot walk more than 50 meters with intermittent claudication. MRI of the spine performed 06-July-2006 showed LCS L3-4 and more severe at L4-5.

On examination: weak dorsiflexion and palnterflexion both feet with continuous numbness of the big toe right foot.

Decompressive laminectomy L4 and partial of L3 and L5 was performed with foraminotomy of both L5 roots.

The patient was discharged the next postoperative day with full recovery of her neurological deficit.

Comments:

1. LCS when progressing, surgery give better results when the patient still not suffering from irreversible damage to the neural structures.
