Abstract

Radiculopathy due to lumbar disc prolapse is the most common diagnosis in spinal surgery. Most patients heal after a 6–8 weeks medical treatment; 10–15 % still complaining pain, undergo microsurgery. Intraforaminal disc prolapse is a particular kind of hernia as for intensity of pain and for anatomical features. The conventional (ipsilateral) approaches for its removal require a partial or complete resection of facet joint, intertransverse ligament cutting or disruption of the pars interarticularis, risking chronic low back pain and longterm instability.
