Indication intENTS® Lumbar and Cervical
The goal is to reduce the volume of the nucleus pulposus, thereby achieving a decompression of the nerve roots. Another treatment option is to sclerotize nociceptors in the dorsal annulus curvature. There is also the term High Intensity Zone (HIZ), which is represented in the MRT as a visible sign of disc degeneration (bright zone in the disc ring).
There are two different sets of instruments available that are specially optimized for procedures on the cervical and lumbar spine.
