All the compressive elements were eliminated and inspection of the annulus fibrosis both sides revealed that it is better not to violate the disc space of L3-4. Check for instability was negative.

Comments

bullet

The stenosis was so severe that, almost drop both feet took place. The bulging disc was part of his problem, but not essential. The major problem was from the hypertrophied facet joints.

bullet

Lumbar canal stenosis is usually a progressive disease and the sooner surgery is performed the better the outcome.

bullet

Discectomy can only be decided after inspection of the annulus fibrosis both sides. If it is glistening and there is no extrusion, it is better not to violated the disc space.
