Traditionally, surgery for a herniated disc involves an open procedure, whereby
the displaced material and the pressure on the nerve root is removed. While the
results in selected patients are predictable, morbidity and complications
associated with open discectomy have been described (1,2). As a result, various
less invasive, percutaneous techniques have been developed. These include
chemonucleolysis, automated percutaneous lumbar discectomy (APLD), laser
discectomy, and ...

The goal of these MIS approaches is to achieve clinical outcomes similar to those
of standard approaches yet minimize the iatrogenic injury encountered during the
approach to the spine. This chapter reviews current concepts in minimal access
lumbar discectomy. The focus will in large part be on microscopic discectomy, but
we will review percutaneous endoscopic discectomy for extraforaminal
herniations and other new modalities that may be applied in lumbar disc surgery.

However, recent literature revealed that tubular microdiscectomy is equally
invasive as conventional microdiscectomy in terms of CPK and multifidus muscle
atrophy.13 Patients treated with tubular microdiscectomy reported more back
pain during first year after surgery. Some authors introduced percutaneous
lumbar discectomy procedure and its indication has been broadened.14–19 This
kind of percutaneous endoscopic discectomy has been considered as a real
minimal invasive ...

7. Percutaneous. Lumbar. Discectomy. Introduction. Discogenic leg pain is a
primary cause of healthcare expenditure. The two entities of back pain and
discogenic leg pain produce more days lost than any other combined illness and
injuries, costing the US healthcare system over $20 billion per year.1,2 Pain from
discogenic sources typically is produced from annular breakdown and annular
tears.3,4 This is commonly treated with a microdiscectomy by orthopedic
surgeons and ...

Investigators publish new data in the report 'Long-term outcomes of patients with
lumbar disc herniation treated with percutaneous discectomy: comparative study
with microendoscopic discectomy.' According to recent research published in the
journal Cardiovascular and Interventional Radiology, “We assessed the long-
term outcomes of patients with lumbar disc herniation treated with percutaneous
lumbar discectomy (PLD) or microendoscopic discectomy (MED). A retrospective
