Abstract

The next step in expanding the indications of percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy is management of lumbar canal stenosis via endoscopic approach. Technical advances in the endoscopic instruments especially endodrill [burr], and endoscopic punch are allowing the spine surgeons to take on the challenge of lumbar decompression by the most minimally invasive approach possible. But the procedure is still in developmental phases with indications limited to selective cases. We wish to present a technical report and brief discussion about the current application of endoscopy in lumbar canal stenosis.
