Lumbar Radiculopathy with Decompressive Laminectomy Procedure

This medical exhibit features one cross sectional view of the L4-5 interspace offering a view of this level from above. This view shows the bulging of the L4-5 disc causing a compression of the right nerve root as it passes into the neural foramen at this level. Also, the key steps of the procedure will be illustrated including the exposure of the L4-5 region through a posterior midline incision, the removal of laminae bone from L4 and L5, the removal of the ligamentum flavum and the manipulation of the previously compressed nerve root.
