Abstract

Diagnostic Value of Transforaminal Injections of Steroids in Recurrent Disc Herniations

Although decompression of the nerve root and therefore the improvement of radicular pain is the mainstay of disc surgery, pain may persist or recur despite well-indicated and well-performed surgery. Generally, microdisectomy has been associated with success rates of about 80%. The distinction between low back pain(axial) or radicular leg pain is important.
