EXTRUDED DISC L5-S1 WITH RIGHT DOWNWARD MIGRATION.
The patient came to the clinic 08-December-2013
complaining of LBP for 4 months with right
sciatica. Exacerbation of the LBP with right
sciatica the last month with numbness of all the
toes right foot.
MRI lumbar spine done 02-December-2013 showing
extruded disc L5-S1 with right downward
On examination is limping, in agonizing pain with exaggerated
scoliotic stance. SLRS was 40
degrees both sides with pain shooting to the
right leg when elevating the left leg. There is
weak dorsi and planterflexion right foot -4/5.
Using C-arm, the L5-S1 level
was identified. Foraminotomy right S1 root was
achieved. The extruded disc was removed lateral
to the axilla. Right sided cleaning of L5-S1 was
performed. During the procedure, several
endoscopic maneuvers were applied to trade for
good illumination and good video recording, but
video recording most of the time failed during
recovery. The power of the right foot became
normal and the agonizing right sciatica
The estimated postoperative recurrence of L5-S1
is still around 7%, because the disc space is
still not completely shallow.
