iLESSYS® indications for endoscopic spine surgery
The access through the interlaminar foramen is especially suitable for pathologies of the dorsal spinal canal, recess and medial area of the foramen intervertebrale.
This includes central stenosis, dorsal facet joint cysts and dorsal or lateral of the dura migrated herniated discs. Furthermore, pathologies at the level L5/S1, which are difficult to reach via the transforaminal approach (usually patients with high pelvic crest, or cranial folded or sequestered disc herniations), are indications.
Selected indications of surgery with the iLESSYS® method
- Lumbar herniated discs, dorsal and lateral of the spinal nerves
- Dorsal facet joint cysts
- Lumbar central stenosis and recess stenosis
- Cervical foraminal herniated discs and dorsal stenosis with radiculopathies
Cervical the iLESSYS® instrument set can be used for the treatment of dorsal and foraminal pathologies. Access and indications correspond to the Frykholm approach.
For substantial decompression of central stenosis joimax® offers the endoscopic system iLESSYS® Delta.
