Percutaneous endoscopic decompression for lumbar spinal stenosis: 우리들병원 안용 병원장 SCI(E) 논문 게재


안용 병원장님의 논문이 Experts reviews of medical devices 7월호에 게재되었습니다.
요추 협착증 치료를 위한 경피적 내시경 감압술에 대한 review article 입니다.
그동안 리뷰했던 original article과는 다르게 내시경 감압술에 대한 전반적인 설명이 나와있습니다. 특히 각 approach 별로 그림과 사진이 잘 나와있어 많은 도움이 될 것 같습니다.

*Title: Percutaneous endoscopic decompression for lumbar spinal stenosis.

*Author: Ahn Y




Percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy has become a representative minimally invasive spine surgery for lumbar disc herniation.

Due to the remarkable evolution in the techniques available, the paradigm of spinal endoscopy is shifting from treatments of soft disc herniation to those of lumbar spinal stenosis.


Lumbar spinal stenosis can be classified into three categories according to pathological zone as follows: 1)central stenosis, 2)lateral recess stenosis and 3)foraminal stenosis.




Moreover, percutaneous endoscopic decompression (PED) techniques may vary according to the type of lumbar stenosis, including interlaminar PED, transforaminal PED and endoscopic lumbar foraminotomy.

However, these techniques are continuously evolving. In the near future, PED for lumbar stenosis may be an efficient alternative to conventional open lumbar decompression surgery.
