BACKGROUND Percutaneous disc decompression using Coblation (Nucleoplasty trade mark) implements the principle of volumetric reduction to achieve disc decompression and reduce intradiscal pressure. Previous analyses have shown that Nucleoplasty achieves reduction in volume and intradiscal pressure with minimal damage to surrounding tissue in the treated disc. OBJECTIVE To determine effectiveness of nucleoplasty in patients with discogenic back pain. STUDY DESIGN A prospective, non-randomized… CONTINUE READING
