The video of the procedure can be accessed through a provided link. Recurrence of synovial cysts is common, and the potential for prevention through ultra-minimally invasive approaches is highlighted in the article

ABSTRACT

Synovial spinal cysts cause radiculopathy and back pain, with rare reports of cauda equina syndrome. Hypermobility and instability are cornerstones for synovial cyst formation. The incidence is around 5%, and data for bilateral cysts are lacking. Surgery is indicated after conservative measures fail. Recurrence is common and is potentially due to joint violation and destabilization from open surgery. This could be prevented via ultra-minimally invasive approaches. The authors present full endoscopic removal of bilateral synovial cysts in a patient with grade 1 stable spondylolisthesis and include a 360° view for confirmation of complete decompression. Postoperatively, the patient reported immediate pain relief. The video can be found here: https://stream.cadmore.media/r10.3171/2024.1.FOCVID23208.
