The patho-anatomy in an aging spine is partly defined by Rauschning's anatomic cryosections. Theories of pain generation and principles of minimally invasive spine surgery are suggested by close examination of these specimens. If the visualized patho-anatomy can be studied in vivo in a partially sedated patient by spinal probing, spinal pain can be better understood, and rational endoscopic treatment options may then evolve.1 A 1997 IRB-approved study provided evidence that endoscopic… Expand
In-vivo Endoscopic Visualization of Pain Generators in the Lumbar Spine
TLDR
The physiology of pain can be visualized, and treated surgically as the path-anatomy of a pain generator, to demonstrate that the endoscopic foraminal approach has advantages over traditional surgical approaches. Expand
Full Endoscopic Spinal Surgery Techniques: Advancements, Indications, and Outcomes
  • J. Yue, W. Long

  • International Journal of Spine Surgery
  • 2015
TLDR
Endoscopic burrs, electrocautery, and focused laser technology allow for the least invasive spinal surgical techniques in all age groups and across varying body habitus and Complications include among others, dural tears, dysesthsia, nerve injury, and infection. Expand
The “inside out” transforaminal technique to treat lumbar spinal pain in an awake and aware patient under local anesthesia: results and a review of the literature
TLDR
Surgical management of back and leg pain is evolving and changing due to a better understanding of the patho-anatomy well correlated with its pathophysiology, resulting in a shared decision making involving patient and surgeon, focused on a broader spectrum of surgical as well as non-surgical treatments.

Endoscopic Trans-iliac Approach to L5-S1 Disc and Foramen – A Report on Clinical Experience
TLDR
Endoscopic transiliac approach to the L5-S1 disc and foramen is feasible and safe and can be performed safely via trans-iliac access with minimal blood loss, and in a short operative time. Expand
Five-year clinical outcomes with endoscopic transforaminal outside-in foraminoplasty techniques for symptomatic degenerative conditions of the lumbar spine.
TLDR
Patients with symptomatic foraminal stenosis may be treated successfully in a staged manner with outside-in transforaminal endoscopic decompression while maintaining favorable long-term outcomes without the excessive need for fusion in the vast majority of patients. Expand
Transforaminal Endoscopic Decompression for Painful Degenerative Conditions of The Lumbar Spine: A review of One Surgeon’s Experience with Over 10,000 Cases Since 1991
TLDR
The transforaminal endoscopic technique has evolved to be the least invasive, most effective method to surgically address the pain generators in the lumbar spine, allowing for earlier treatment of painful conditions that fail nonsurgical treatment. Expand
Transforaminal Endoscopic Decompression of the Lumbar Spine for Stable Degenerative Spondylolisthesis as the Least Invasive Surgical Treatment Using the YESS Surgery Technique
TLDR
When dorsal endoscopic ablation of the medial branch of the dorsal ramus was later added to the endoscopic procedure to address axial back pain, even better clinical outcomes were obtained by this focused study on degenerative spondylolisthesis, with or without disc protrusion and stenosis. Expand
Endoscopic Decompression for Degenerative and Isthmic Spondylolisthesis
TLDR
A review of a database of patients who refused fusion, but opting to an endoscopic decompression with sciatica, even in the face of back pain determined that transforaminal decompression for a disc herniation or foraminal stenosis is effective in some patients and result in a decrease in the need for fusion.

Feasibility of Using Intraoperative Neuromonitoring in the Prophylaxis of Dysesthesia in Transforaminal Endoscopic Discectomies of the Lumbar Spine
TLDR
Neuromonitoring enabled the intraoperative diagnosis of DRG compression during the initial transforaminal placement of the endoscopic working cannula and the directly visualized video endoscopic procedure. Expand
