Indications for decompression / deherniation with iLESSYS® Pro
iLESSYS® Pro is perfect for intraspinal, ipsi- and contralateral decompression and deherniation. All instruments for access and resection as well as the endoscope have been optimized for decompression within the spinal channel.
A focus of development was the aspect of surgical efficiency, streamlining of the procedure and improvement of ergonomics. The new iLESSYS® Pro set exhibits excellent properties especially for ipsi- and contralateral intraspinal bony decompression and deherniation. Both access are possible under full endoscopic view (over-the-top technique).
iLESSYS® Pro Selected Indications:
- Lumbar herniated discs dorsal and lateral to the spinal nerves
- Spinal stenosis grade A1-4
- Hypertrophic ligamentum flavum
- Facet joint cysts
- Lumbar central stenosis and recessus stenosis
- Foraminal stenosis both sides
The over-the-top or cross-over technique allows a bilateral decompression via an unilateral endoscopic surgical access. After extension of the interlaminar window, a look at the opposite side is provided. This reach direct to the other side of the spinal canal with all instruments, without the need of a second skin incision offers an unique new full access for decompression. In minimally invasive procedure the surgeon works crosswise (cross over).
