With Diskom pressure on both spinal cord and nerve roots can be significantly reduced by removing disc herniation through a minimally invasive procedure.
Hernia is a common disorder that occurs when the intervertebral discs nucleus pulposus becomes dislodged from its natural position inside the annulus fibrosus. Most annulus fibrosus lesions are the result of repeated microtraumas of or a major trauma that degenerates to allow the nucleus pulposus to bulge and compress the spinal cord or a nerve, causing pain in the back and in the legs. When conservative treatment fails and symptoms persist or worsen, surgical treatment is considered.
Using Diskom, spine specialists can reduce pressure on the nerve root by removing disc nucleus with a totally percutaneous procedure, which is minimally invasive.
Diskom is made up of two elements: an access needle with both distal and side openings, and a titanium choclear tip for the mechanical removal of the nucleous polpous. The great advantage of this device is that the cochlea is tightly connected, so it is almost impossible for it to detach: this is an advantage that is surely a unique feature of this system.
