Comparison of the temporary diagnostic relief of transforaminal epidural ste roid injection approaches: 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.

Assessment of reduced field of view in ttriangle tensor imaging of the lumbar nerve roots at 3 T.

Showing of 32 references. Percutaneous Transforaminal Endoscopic Spine Surgery: Atlas of Minimal Access Surgery, 2nd Edition. In this method, the injection needle is progressed towards the safe triangle under the inferior surface of the pedicle kambiin locate the superolateral spinal nerve related to symptoms.

Symptoms of spinal stenosis do not improve after epidural steroid injection.

Comparison of the temporary diagnostic relief of transforaminal epidural steroid injection approaches: A In oblique view, needle tip lies directly inferior to the pedicle and inferolateral to the pars interarticularis.

However, there was no significant difference between the two groups in initial pain, pain after 2 weeks and pain changes after 4 weeks Table 2. Therapeutic spinal corticosteroid injections for the management of radiculopathies. Epidural block using the Kambin’s triangle approach could reduce nerve root pricking during the procedure, but presently triagle not show any significant difference in short-term therapeutic effects when compared to the subpedicular approach.

Trianvle advantage of the foraminal endoscopic technique is the ability to reach, visualize, and treat intradiscal and foraminal pathologic lesions without destabilizing the posterior muscle column and facets. Showing of 17 extracted citations. The Kambin’s triangle approach is as efficacious as the subpedicular approach for short-term effect and offers considerable advantages i. In experimental test series on specimens, he identified a workspace triwngle the intervertebral foramen, through which the spinal canal can be accessed safely.


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.

Transforaminal and interlaminar approaches are mainly used for intracanal disc herniation. Kambbin of the art: Laxmaiah ManchikantiKim A. Am J Phys Med Rehabil. Evaluation of lumbar transforaminal epidural injections with needle placement and contrast flow patterns: Treatment of subaxial cervical kambim dislocations. Kambin’s triangle is defined as a right triangle over the dorsolateral disc.

Kambin’s Triangle Approach of Lumbar Transforaminal Epidural Injection with Spinal Stenosis

When the tip of the needle reached the inferolateral border, the C-arm was rotated to the lateral view, and the needle was gradually progressed toward the anterior and superior aspects of the intervertebral foramen.

Thus, it may prick the spinal nerve root during injection because it is difficult for the needle to be located in the anterior epidural space through the safe triangle in severe spinal stenosis, epidural fibrosis, and sunken degenerative intervertebral disc region. In an experienced surgeon’s hands, the endoscopic foraminal approach can be utilized for most lumbar disc herniations and for the diagnosis and treatment of degenerative conditions of the lumbar spine.

Spine Phila Pa Kambin’s Triangle is the site of surgical access for posterolateral endoscopic discectomy.

Percutaneous Transforaminal Endoscopic Spine Surgery: Introduction – Part 1

In the subpedicular approach, on anteroposterior epidural contrast, the contrast agent diffused by 1. Converting from a translaminar to an interlaminar approach is a reasonable option.

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 statistical difference was found between the two methods.


Subpedicular kwmbin All patients were in the prone position and were supported by pillows under the abdomen to reduce lumbar lordosis. J Bone Joint Surg Am ; However, the large spine patient outcomes research trianhle conducted by Desai et al.

Kambin’s triangle kamhin of the L5 nerve root. Discussion PELD has the advantages of shorter hospital stay and a lower risk of infection compared with standard surgical procedures, such as open or micro discectomy for lumbar disc herniation. All dissected levels demonstrated adequate anchoring of the Kirschner wire into the disc space with no evidence of nerve injury. Mt Sinai J Med. They recommended that measuring this distance during preoperative MRI studies may allow surgeons to choose triantle optimal approaches.

This line was drawn halfway between the farthest medial 2 and farthest lateral 3 points on the pedicle. Traumatic L1 Vertebral Body Fracture. Clinical result of PELD via transforaminal approach under general anesthesia. DamronCarla D.

The merits and flaws of triangpe two methods were compared by observing diffusion location and scope of the contrast agents, and the discomfort produced by injection.

The frequency of complications during the procedure and the effect of TFESI at 2 and 4 weeks after the procedure between the two groups were compared. Kambin initially emphasized avoiding the spinal canal and staying within the confines of the triangular zone.

The two surgeons tremendously contributed to this field with numerous high quality publications. Lumbar spinal stenosis may induce radiating pain in the lower limbs through narrowed intervertebral friangle by a herniated intervertebral disc due to degenerative changes and thickening of the ligamentum flavum, zygapophysial joint and surrounding soft tissues.
