Interlaminar Decompression & Deherniation

Herniated discs and spinal stenoses are widespread health concerns. Endoscopic spinal surgery has become an alternative and reliable treatment method for a variety of spinal conditions.

A real alternative to conservative surgical techniques

Endoscopic spine surgery is intended as an ultra minimally invasive surgical technique to treat disc herniations and spinal stenoses. It has developed as an alternative to open or tubular techniques and has been very fast advancing in the last 20 years. Today endoscopic spine surgery surpasses other options such as open and micro surgical procedures in treating spine pathologies in many ways!1

The interlaminar endoscopic lumbar discectomy is a favorable option for patients with high-grade disc migration, preferably for L4/L5 and L5/S12. For posterior decompression without disc resection the interlaminar approach allows controlled resection3, shows less risk of injury to the exiting nerve root and may be applied comfortably even for less experienced surgeons4. Several studies demonstrate the effectiveness and safety of the minimally invasive surgical technique5 and highly confirm successful outcomes characterized by effective reduction in symptoms, minimal blood loss as well as short
hospital stays6.

Interlaminar endoscopic access

The iLESSYS® method – with safe access through the interlaminar window – has proven to be a particularly patient-friendly procedure showing little complications.

Compared to open or microscopic techniques, only minimal soft tissue disruption is necessary due to the small diameter of the joimax® Laminoscopes®. During the entire procedure, high quality optics and constant irrigation ensure an excellent view by continuously removing debris and bleeding from the surgical site.

Selected indications for the interlaminar method (iLESSYS®)

  • Dorsal and lateral disc herniations
  • Spinal stenoses (central, lateral recess, foraminal entry zone
  • Hypertrophic ligamentum flavum
  • Facet joint cysts
  • Assisted interlaminar fusion
