Nucleoplasty


Lubdha M. Shah, MD










Axial graphic shows a probe removing a portion of the nucleus pulposus image. There is a focal contained left foraminal disc protrusion impinging upon the exiting nerve image.






A wand-like device inserted through the needle and into the disc image uses heat to remove disc material and seal the channel made by the needle. The needle should not transgress the transpedicular line.
