Background: Degenerative spinal disease increases in proportion to life expectancy. Surgical treatments that play an essential role in the management of degenerative spinal disease have evolved from open surgery to minimally invasive surgery as well as endoscopic spinal surgery. Advanced pathological understanding, diagnostic imaging, and instrument progress have support for endoscopic spinal surgery. The study aims to report the current situation of endoscopic spinal surgery to treat degenerative spinal diseases in the Department of Neurosurgery of Kariadi Hospital.
Method: Review the Endoscopy Spine Surgery case in the Department of Neurosurgery of Kariadi Hospital with degenerative spinal diseases including canal stenosis and disc herniation at all levels.
Results: A total of 123 degenerative spinal diseases have been treated with endoscopic spinal surgery. Most of patients comes with HNP (89 patients, 72.4%) and operated in lumbal segment (87 patients, 70,7%). Estimated blood loss parameter in <50 years group had mean 72.85 Â± 44.79 ml and >50 years group had mean 115.00 Â± 95.25 ml with p=0.001. We got high correlation between operation time and estimated blood loss with r = 0.779 and statistically significant (p=0.000)
Conclusion: Endoscopic surgery appears to be an option for treating degenerative spinal diseases especially for herniation and canal stenosis. The lumbar and thoracic regions are common areas for endoscopic spinal surgery.
