Abstract


INTRODUCTION:

DISC prolapse is a common problem seen in general population and 10% patients may require surgical intervention.

OBJECTIVE:

To determine functional outcome of patients operated by Conventional Discectomy with endoscopic discecetomy.

METHODOLOGY

Study Area: Bharati Hospital

Sample Size: 40 (20 - Conventional discectomy, 20 - endoscopic discectomy)

Scores used : VAS and Oswestery Disability Index

RESULTS :

Patients operated for Disc Herniations by conventional or percutaneous discectomy were followed up 1 month 3 months and 6 months postoperatively showing similar results in terms of pain relief

However patients operated by conventional discectomy had more post operative pain a larger inscision size and more blood loss in comparison to those operated by percutaneous discectomy.

Patients operated by conventional discectomy had to go through General Anesthesia while those operated by endoscopic discectomy could be given Local Anesthesia

CONCLUSION :

Endoscopic discectomy is a newer technique which is practised now a days for PIVD and it shows better results than conventional discectomy in terms of post op pain the amount of blood loss, post op ambulation and anesthesia given.

However the pain relief at followup is almost the same for both

surgical techniques.
