Chronic lumbar discogenic pain (CLDP) impairs the patient’s physical abilities to function within the normal physiologic loading ranges of activities of daily living. The pathogenesis of CLDP is multi-factorial and not well understood. Conservative
therapeutic regimens often fail to achieve sufficient pain relief. Surgical options vary greatly in surgical invasiveness as well as outcome. Definitive surgical treatment is often 360° fusion. The morbidity associated with this approach is significant when considering only 65-80% of patients obtain satisfactory clinical results. This has spawned interest in minimally invasive surgical options like IDET, but results are conflicting.
