STUDY DESIGN An intraoperative straight-leg-raising (SLR) test was conducted to investigate patients with lumbar disc herniation to observe the changes in intraradicular blood flow, which then were compared with the clinical features. OBJECTIVE The legs of each patient were hung down from the operating table as a reverse SLR test during surgery, and intraradicular blood flow was measured. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA It is not known whether intraradicular blood flow changes during the SLR… CONTINUE READING
