BACKGROUND CONTEXT An excessive amount of scar tissue after lumbar microdiscectomy may increase postoperative pain. Several fibrosis inhibitors have been used in the past in an endeavor for better functional outcome. PURPOSE The goal of this study was to evaluate DuraSeal Xact Adhesion Barrier and Sealant System (DSX), a polyethylene glycol-based synthetic fibrosis inhibitor, for its ability to reduce postoperative pain after lumbar microdiscectomy. STUDY DESIGN This is a prospective… CONTINUE READING
