Abstract

Thepercutaneous treatmentof lumbardisc diseasewithlaser energyhas recently emerged as an alternative to standard open surgery or mechanical percutaneous methods. The indications of percutaneousendoscopic laser discectomy should, however, be well evaluated according to clinical and morphological criteria. We report three cases of herniated lumbar disc treated with conventional open surgery after the failure of laser discectomy.
