STUDY DESIGN The histochemical changes in the multifidus muscle in 29 patients with L4-L5 lumbar intervertebral disc herniation were studied. OBJECTIVES To clarify how nerve root impairment affects the histochemical properties of the lumbar multifidus muscle in patients with lumbar intervertebral disk herniation. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA There have been several studies on histochemical changes in lumbar muscles in patients with nerve root impairment, but the findings concerning changes in… CONTINUE READING
