Recognize Lumbar Spine in India

The Lumbar Vertebrae are five vertebrae (L1-L5) that form the spine in the lower back. Here the spine begins curving toward the abdomen. As the top of lumbar vertebrae (L1) meets the bottom of the thoracic vertebrae, the base of the lumbar vertebrae (L5) meets the sacral spine. The Lumbar Vertebrae is designated from L1 to L5, as it starts at the top.

The lumbar vertebrae help supports the weight of the body, and permit movement. Also this assists to absorb pressure, distribute stress, and keep the vertebrae from grinding against each other.

General Anatomy to Lumbar

The Lumbar Vertebral Canal is roughly triangular in shape and is narrowest in its anteroposterior diameter in the axial plane. The average anteroposterior diameter of the lumbar canal in adults ranges from 15 to 23 mm. The canal is bounded anteriorly by the posterior edge of the vertebral body including the posterior longitudinal ligament, which gets narrowly placed to the posterior vertebral body surface, laterally by the pedicles, posterolaterally by the facet joints and articular capsules, and posteriorly by the lamina and ligamenta flava.

Types of Surgery for Lumber in India

  • Fusion Surgery¬†¬†¬†

Fusion surgery makes use of a bone graft that affects closest vertebrae to cultivate into a single bone. Really, this surgery is most effective when only two vertebrae are combined together.

  • L5-S1 Fusion

A fusion between the fifth lumbar and first sacral comes the most common type of fusion surgery. It does not alter the back’s mechanics considerably because the movement between these two vertebrae is limited to start by.

  • L4-L5 Fusion

Also the L4-L5 segment is a common site for fusion surgery. Normally this segment lets a noteworthy amount of motion and the operation will clearly decrease the spine’s flexibility.

  • Artificial Disc Replacement

A degenerated disc may be put back with an artificial disc. This may uphold more of the spine’s normal motion and lessen the stress on adjacent spinal segments.
