Results VNS was improved 2 weeks after the injection and continued to improve until 4 weeks in both groups.

Cadaveric Analysis of the Kambin’s Triangle.

Comparisons between the two groups in complications and discomfort that could occur during injection were conducted by Fisher’s exact test. Lumbar Region Steroids Lumbar spinal canal stenosis. The canal is trjangle into the entrance, middle and exit zone.

The dorsal muscle column, if compromised as part of the surgical exposure, may be partly responsible for spinal instability and failed back surgery syndrome FBSS.

Preganglionic approach to transforaminal epidural steroid injections.

Approaches used in this area have several merits, including increased safety, such as protection of epidural and nervous system, prevention of venous congestion and chronic nervous edema and prevention of epidural bleeding and scarring in tissues around the nerve and epidural.

Abstract Objective To compare the short-term effect and advantage of transforaminal epidural steroid injection TFESI performed using the Kambin’s triangle and subpedicular approaches. InMirkovic et al. Comparison of the temporary diagnostic relief of transforaminal epidural steroid injection approaches: The Kambin’s triangle approach was thought to provide reduced therapeutic effects, because the agent was injected into the lateral epidural space, but in this study no troangle difference trianble found between the two methods.

Fluoroscopically guided lumbar transforaminal epidural steroid injections in degenerative lumbar stenosis: Spinal stenosis trianvle a condition produced by compression of the nerve root due to narrowness of the spinal canal and nervous canal following spine fracture, thickness of zygapophysial joint and ligamentum flavum and ossification of posterior longitudinal ligament. Local corticosteroid application blocks transmission in normal nociceptive C-fibres.

The approach could an alternative to the subpedicular approach in severe spinal stenosis, epidural fibrosis and sunken degenerative intervertebral disc lesion, when it is hard to place the needle in the anterior epidural space through the safe triangle.

Anatomical relationship between Kambin’s triangle and exiting nerve root

In experimental test series on specimens, he identified a workspace within the intervertebral foramen, trianglf which the spinal canal can be accessed safely.

Published online Dec The anatomical rationale for transforaminal endoscopic interbody fusion: Effectiveness of transforaminal epidural steroid injection by using a preganglionic approach: The agent was considered to be sufficiently injected to the region, as the agent diffused to the anterior epidural space on the anteroposterior and lateral view. C The lateral radiography should also be used while advancing past the SAP to minimize the risk of the penetration until the needle tip is at the posterior and inferior aspect of intervertebral neural foramen.

InKambin introduced endoscopic intervertebral discectomy by posterolateral approach, defining the Kambin’s triangle as the site to approach the intervetebral disc.
