Laser Spine Disc Surgery
Should anyone perform percutaneous endoscopic laser diskectomy and percutaneous lumbar disc decompressions?
Background: Increasingly, pain management specialists (P-S) (e.g., anesthesiologists, radiologists, or physiatrists), who are not spinal surgeons, are performing percutaneous endoscopic laser diskectomy (PELD), percutaneous lumbar
Percutaneous laser disc decompression versus conventional microdiscectomy for patients with sciatica: Two-year results of a randomised controlled trial
Background Percutaneous laser disc decompression is a minimally invasive treatment, for lumbar disc herniation and might serve as an alternative to surgical management of sciatica.
A Novel Combination of Percutaneous Endoscopic Lumbar Discectomy and Epiduroscopic Laser Neural Decompression for Down-migrated Disc Herniation
Although percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) is an effective treatment for herniated discs, its application in a disc with extensive migration is still challenging. As
Percutaneous laser disc decompression versus microdiscectomy for sciatica: Cost utility analysis alongside a randomized controlled trial
Background Percutaneous laser disc decompression (PLDD) for patients with lumbar disc herniation is believed to be cheaper than surgery. However, cost-effectiveness has never been studied.
Efficacy of high intensity laser therapy in treatment of patients with lumbar disc protrusion: A randomized controlled trial
Objective: This study aims to evaluate the effect of high intensity laser therapy (HILT) in patients with lumbar disc protrusion (LDP). Methods: This study included
