AIM: Lumbar discectomy is a standard surgical intervention in neurosurgical observe. Iatrogenic vascular harm throughout this surgical procedure is a uncommon, however critical complication. On this research, our intention was to evaluation the common secure depth of discectomy for each sexes.
MATERIAL AND METHODS: This research concerned a complete of 56 sufferers between 21 and 79 years previous (28 male and 28 feminine) who had no surgical pathology as documented by lumbar magnetic resonance imaging research. Measurements at L3-Four, L4-5, and L5-S1 have been carried out for each sexes as follows: 1 < sup > st < /sup > measurement, from the furthest lateral a part of the dura to the tip of the disc (right-left); 2 < sup > nd < /sup > measurement, the anteroposterior size of the cross-section passing by way of the midline of the disc; third measurement; from the furthest lateral a part of the dura to the furthest lateral a part of the disc (right-left); 4th measurement, the size from proper to left of the cross-section passing by way of the midline of the disc.
RESULTS: Measurement 1 at L3-Four, L4-5, and L5-S1, this worth was estimated to be 35.9 and 36.7 mm, 35.9 and 36.9, and 34 and 34.9 mm in the correct and left sides respectively, for feminine topics. The corresponding values for males have been 41.Four and 42.1, 40.6 and 40.9, and 37.Four and 37.7 mm at L3-Four, L4-5, and L5-S1, respectively. Measurement three in L3-Four, L4-5, and L5-S1 disc areas on the correct and left sides in feminine topics have been 14.eight and 16.three mm, 15.7 and 17.2 mm, and 14.9 and 17.1 mm, respectively, with corresponding figures of 18.6 and 19.5, 19.7 and 20.6, and 18.2 and 18.6 mm amongst male contributors. Measurement 2 and Four in females for L3-Four, L4-5, and L5-S1 have been 38.Four and 52.three mm, 38.9 and 53.Four mm, and 37 and 51.eight mm, respectively. The corresponding figures for males have been 43.2 and 57.6 mm, 43.2 and 58.9 mm, and 40.1 and 56.7 mm, respectively.
CONCLUSION: Willpower of the secure discectomy depth in each women and men, in addition to the usage of marking disc punches to point the secure margins might assist clinicians to keep away from this undesirable complication.
