Existing studies on micro-endoscopic lumbar discectomy report similar outcomes to those of open and microdiscectomy and conflicting results on complications. We designed a randomised controlled trial to investigate the hypothesis of different outcomes and complications obtainable with the three techniques. 240 patients aged 18–65 years affected by posterior(More)
Direct repair of spondylolisthesis can save a functional segment in young patients with slight slipping. Since 1968 many surgeons have proposed different technical solutions to obtain the isthmic repair. Their results changed according to the technique used, the extent of listhesis and the age of the patient. The aim of our study was to perform a(More)
Grob et al. (Eur Spine J 5:281–285, 1996) illustrated a new fixation technique in inveterate cases of grade 2–3 spondylolisthesis (degenerative or spondylolytic): a fusion without reduction of the spondylolisthesis. Fixation of the segment was achieved by two cancellous bone screws inserted bilaterally through the pedicles of the lower vertebra into the(More)
Posterior dynamic stabilisation (PDS) aims at relieving lumbar discogenic pain and preserving adjacent levels from accelerated degeneration. To evaluate the results of a novel PDS system in 32 adult patients affected by chronic low back pain (CLBP) due to degenerative lumbar spine instability (DLSI). A progressive follow-up for 12 months of 32 patients,(More)
Forty-two patients underwent surgery for far-lateral disc herniations. Average patient age was 45.1 years, 28 patients were male and 14 female. The level concerned most was L4-5 disc (55%). A paramedian muscle-splitting intertransverse approach is described for this type of disc herniation. This method allows direct visualization of the disc and root(More)
