Open Cervical Foraminotomy: A Systematic Review

  title={Open Cervical Foraminotomy: A Systematic Review},
  author={Jayashree Padhy},
Foraminotomy is a surgical technique for augmenting the zone where the spinal nerve roots leave the spinal segment. A foramen is the opening around the nerve root, and otomy alludes to the therapeutic strategy for developing the opening. In this method, specialists augment the path to soothe weight where the spinal nerve is being crushed in the foramen.

The Anterior Retroperitoneal Approach to the Degenerative Lumbar Spine: Clinico-Therapeutic Remarks
The ALIF procedure is one of the most widely used technique, and is argued to have biomechanical advantages over posterior approaches for lumbar spinal fusion: restoration of disk height and lumbare lordosis, reduction of listhesis, restoring of coronal and sagittal balance.
A New Progression Towards a Safer Anterior Percutaneous Endoscopic Cervical Discectomy: A Technical Report
A technical report and brief discussion about the new instruments design and procedure that will enhance the safety measures in PECD are presented.
Complete Non-fusion of the Sacral Spines: A Rare Phenomenon
Complete non-fusion of sacral spines is simply an incomplete vertebra, which can lead to accidental injury of neural structures which are normally covered by the sacral canal.
Minimally Invasive Spine Osteosynthesis (MISO) Technique for FracturesSpine: A Case Series 14 Cases
Mini open surgery for posterior pedicle screws fixation has attracting increasing attention as it brings a multitude of advantages including: less bleeding, lower incidence of postoperative intractable low back pain and reduced hospitalization stay; however; some shortcomings as limited indications, unsuitability for long segment fusion and high load-sharing score patients restricts its worldwide prevalence.
The Spinal Cord Pyramidal Structures Reaction to Intraoperative Instrumental Correction of Spine Deformity
The aim of this study was electroneuromyographic evaluation of the spinal cord pyramidal structures reactivity when performing the onestage (intraoperative) instrumental correction of spinal
Microendoscopic Posterior Decompression for the Treatment of Lumbar Lateral Recess Stenosis
Intraoperative findings revealed that the most common cause of nerve root compression was hypertrophy of the superior articular process and ligamentum flavum, and VAS score improved in all patients following posterior decompression.
Transmanubrial Approach for Fracture of Lower Cervical Spine (C7) in Elderly Patients: A Case Report
A technique that potentially simplifies addressing the vertebral bodies of the cervicothoracic junction for anterior cervical fusion in patients with difficult anatomical conditions and allows a safe and stable insertion of the caudal screws is described.
Chordoma of the Cervical Spine in a Competition Athlete: Case Report and Long-term Follow Up
A 19-year-old female professional athlete with a cervical chordoma, involving C2, C3 and C4 vertebrae with spinal cord compression, is reported, involving one anterior resection of the lesion and an arthrodesis and anterior fixation.
Transforaminal Endoscopic Surgery: Its Role in the Treatment of Painful Conditions of an Aging Spine
A major gap exists between fusion oriented surgeons and Pain Management leaders, bridged by transforaminal endoscopic surgeons represented by the International Intradiscal and Transforaminal Therapy
Efficacy of Nucleo-Annuloplasty Using Disc-Fx in Lumbar Disc Herniation
The results suggest that the Disc-FX procedure is a reasonable treatment option for carefully selected patients with lower back and radicular pain of discogenic origin.
