Using C-arm the level of L3-4 was identified. Skeletonization of L3 L4 lateral to reach the transverse processii of L3 and L4. Using Medtronic Legacy system, 2 M.A. screws inserted to L3  6.5x45 mm and 2 F.A. screws to L4 6.5x45 mm. Laminectomy of L3 and upper third of L4 was performed with foraminotomy both L4 roots. The disc level was inspected from both sides. Cross connector was applied between the inserted rods 40x5.5 mm. The harvested bone was melted and applied lateral to the rods. Routine closure of the wound.

Smooth postoperative recovery. The power of the left foot became normal.

 

 

Comments

The patient has several bulges above and below. It is reasonable to include one nearby bulge to avoid future escalation, but including all the levels with fusion to prevent this added stress is not practical and meaningless. For that only the L3-4 was fused.

Skyra MRI with all clinical applications in the run since 28-Novemeber-2013.
