Complications and Revision in Lumbar Disc Herniation, Stenosis, and Lumbar Degenerative Condition
In this spine surgery lecture, the complications arising due to surgery in disc prolapse and spinal stenosis are covered, and the need for revision surgery in these conditions is discussed. As the complication chance is higher and surgery is much more difficult than in the virgin plane, strategies to ease the exposure in these situations are suggested. Finally, the management of dural tears is covered.
