The effect of posterior microendoscopy discectomy and open surgery on lumbar disc herniation

Objective: To explore the clinical effects of posterior microendoscopy discectomy and open surgery on lumbar disc herniation.

Methods: A total of 97 patients with lumbar disc herniation treated in our hospital from January 2017 to August 2017 were selected as the research objects followed by being randomly divided into microendoscopy discectomy group (n=43) and open surgery group (n=44) with the method of drawing lots in which the open surgery group were given open surgery while the discectomy group received posterior microendoscopy discectomy (MED) treatment. Then operation conditions, VAS score, JOA, ODI score and recurrence rate were compared between the two groups.

Results: After treatment, there were significant differences in operation conditions, VAS score, JOA, ODI score and recurrence rate between the discectomy group and the open surgery group, P<0.05.

Conclusion: Posterior discectomy is more effective in the treatment of lumbar disc herniation and is worthy of clinical application.
