PURPOSE: We aimed to analyze the surgical technique, security, and efficacy of percutaneous endoscopic decompression through transforaminal strategy for lumbar lateral recess stenosis in geriatric sufferers.
METHODS: From January 2012 to June 2014, 25 aged sufferers (18 males and seven females) with symptomatic lumbar lateral recess stenosis have been carried out percutaneous endoscopic transforaminal decompression. The ages of sufferers ranged from 70 to 93 years (imply 79.6 years). Medical outcomes have been assessed primarily by leg ache visible analogue scale (VAS), Oswestry incapacity index (ODI) rating, MacNab standards, and post-operative computerized tomographic (CT) scanning.
RESULTS: The surgical procedure was efficiently accomplished in all sufferers with a mean operation time of 75 minutes (vary, 50-110 min). The lumbar CT photos at two days after the operation demonstrated distinct enlargement of the foramen intervertebrale in addition to passable decompression of the lumbar lateral recess. And 24 sufferers of the group have been adopted up for a imply period of 29?± six months (vary, 12-44 months). The leg ache VAS rating decreased from eight.52?±?1.11 pre-operatively to 1.80?±?zero.63, 1.33?±?zero.89, 1.05?±?zero.69, and zero.71?±?zero.50 at one, three, six and 12 months after the operation, respectively. In addition to, the ODI rating additionally dropped from 59.43?±?10.04 pre-operatively to 29.42?±?10.33, 20.13?±?eight.18, 13.98?±?6.16, and 9.86?±?5.03 at one, three, six and 12 months in the course of the post-operative follow-up interval. Statistically important variations existed in each VAS rating and ODI rating at every follow-up time level when put next with the pre-operative scores (P?<?zero.05). The imply reciprocal angulation change of the operated section in dynamic lumbar lateral view was three.2°?±?1.6° on the final follow-up. And there have been 18 wonderful instances, three good instances, and three truthful instances based on the MacNab standards, and the wonderful and good charge was 87.5% at 12 months after the operation. There was no aggravation of the coexisting medical situations after operation on this group. Only one case was discovered sophisticated with decrease extremity numbness, which was recovered by conservative remedy for 2 weeks. No persistent neurological deficit or mushy tissue an infection occurred in all sufferers post-operatively.
CONCLUSIONS: We thought of that percutaneous endoscopic transforaminal decompression achieved passable outcomes and offered a protected, efficient, and fewer invasive various for treating lumbar lateral recess stenosis in geriatric sufferers.
