Percutaneous posterolateral foraminoscopy


Description percutaneous posterolateral foraminoscopy

Together with leading surgeons, specialists on the spine was developed tools for the treatment of a herniated disc, which has several advantages.

Foraminoscope allows to locate a video control through the working channel of 3.9 mm, with two separate canals for irrigation and aspiration extradiscal fragments and remove them with the tools, such as the exciting forceps, spoon forceps, scissors and hooks. Small fragments can be vaporized with a laser.

Access opens a known way through the puncture needle, string and extenders. Through the operating sleeve foraminoscope introduced to Anulus Fibrosus.


The advantage of percutaneous posterolateral foraminoscopy

Transforaminal access to the epidural space has the following advantages:

  • Ligamentum Flavum (yellow ligament) is not disclosed, thereby reducing segmental instability
  • sequestered hernia is captured directly, thus remain intact posterior longitudinal ligament and Anulus
  • Nucleus Pulposus (nucleus pulposus) is removed incompletely, which leads to a decrease in segmental instability
  • operation can be performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia
  • In many cases, may mitigate the immediate pain patient


Good handling

Eyepiece and the fiber separated from the tool and placed on the operating side table along with the camera. This allows the surgeon to concentrate on the operation and use of tools required.


Mono-portal access

Through one access can be observed, treatment, irrigation and aspiration. This helps reduce the risk of infection and reduce the duration of the operation, as well as reduce the burden on the patient.


The system included

Tools for approach:

  • optical component
  • convenient tool to remove fragments
  • equipment cart with camera, video recorder and a device for washing

All system components are sterilized and are suitable for repeated use, optimally aligned to each other and provide a functional and safe use during surgery.
