Decompressive laminectomy L4 and partial of L3 and L5 was done. There was no epidural fat at these levels due to severe compression. Foraminotomy of L4 and L5 roots was achieved from both sides. The L4 roots were severely compressed and adherent to the surrounding tissues. Check for instability was performed at all stages of the surgery. It was negative. Inspection of the L3-4 was done from both sides. It was concluded, that it is better not to violate the intradiscal space.

Lumbar canal stenosis is a progressive disease, and the sooner the surgical interference, the better the outcome.

Recovery of the motor fibers take place immediately after surgery, but the sensory fibers take long time to recover.
