Study Design Tissues in the area of herniated lumbar discs were examined for inflammatory cytokines to elucidate the causes of sciatic pain in lumbar disc herniation. Objectives To determine the role of inflammatory cytokines in the stimulation of sciatic pain in lumbar disc herniation. Summary of Background Data It is postulated that in addition to mechanical compression of lumbar nerve roots and sensory root ganglia by herniated discs, there is a chemical stimulus to the production of sciatic… Expand
