Percutaneous Decompression for Contained Disc Herniations
The SpineJet PercResector provides physicians with a percutaneous method for treating patients with contained disc herniations, thus avoiding the need for in-patient surgical intervention. The procedure is performed using a posterolateral approach through Kambin’s triangle, resulting in reduced trauma to muscles and ligaments.
The PercResector comes with a 4.0 mm cannulated access set to create a minimally invasive pathway to the disc space. The access set dilates the annular fibers, allowing them to shrink back into position after the procedure is completed, thus reducing the risk of reherniations.
This 30-minute procedure, performed in an outpatient setting using local anesthesia, allows patients with contained disc herniations to return home the same day without sutures.
