The parents of sixty-three patients who were less than twenty-one years old and who had operatively confirmed herniation of a lumbar disc were interviewed regarding a history of severe back pain, sciatica, and herniated disc, to determine whether aggregation of herniation of a lumbar disc occurs in famlies of patients in this young age-group. The parents of sixty-three additional patients who had a non-spinal orthopaedic diagnosis (control group) were matched for age and sex with the study… 


Lumbar Disc Excision in Children and Adolescents
Results have confirmed a tendency for outcomes to deteriorate between the short-term and long-term follow-up in young patients treated by discectomy and confirmed the need for long- term follow- up of children and adolescents treated for disc herniation.
Lumbar Disc Herniation in Children and Adolescents: A Review of 70 Operated Cases and Their Minimum 5-Year Follow-Up Studies
Fiveyear follow-up studies suggest that interlaminal laminectomy without fusion is the best procedure when surgical treatment of herniated lumbar disc is necessary in children and adolescents.
Herniation of the Lumbar Disc in Children and Adolescents
It is found that, in the absence of neurological deficit, herniated lumbar discs in children and adolescents can be safely treated conservatively.
Incidence and risk factors of herniated lumbar intervertebral disc or sciatica leading to hospitalization.
Low or intermediate social class and blue-collar occupations in services or industry in men and symptoms suggesting psychological distress in women proved significant predictors for hospitalization due to herniated lumbar disc or sciatica.
The excellent results of operation in this age group should encourage active treatment in those cases refractory to conservative measures, and the parent is more alarmed than the patient and presents a far more difficult problem regarding management.
Intervertebral Disc Impingement Syndrome in a Child: Report of a Case and Suggested Pathology
The authors think that this slipped vertebral apophysis may, in fact, represent a large number of the so-called herniated discs in adolescents and suggest that this may be an identifiable syndrome with a susceptible age range, activity level and body habitus.
Acute prolapsed lumbar intervertebral disc. An epidemiologic study with special reference to driving automobiles and cigarette smoking.
An epidemiologic case-control study to identify risk factors for acute prolapsed lumbar intervertebral disc was undertaken in Connecticut during 1979-1981 and found cigarettes smoking in the past year and use of Swedish and Japanese cars were associated with a lower-than-average risk.
Lumbar Intervenebral Disk Herniation in Teenage Children: Recognition and Management of Associated Anomalies
