Article

Summary

The examination technique of intervertebral space endoscopy (nucleoscopy) during nucleotomy is described. After nucleotomy intraoperative pictures of the intervertebral space can be taken using a common arthroscope. The nucleoscopy permits a qualitative statement about the extent of nucleotomy.

Zusammenfassung

Es wird uber die Möglichkeit der endoskopischen Darstellung des Bandscheibenzwischenraumes (Nukleoskopie) berichtet. Es kann gezeigt werden, daß während Nukleotomien mit Hilfe eines Endoskopes die Betrachtung und Fotodokumentation des Bandscheibenzwischenraumes intraoperativ gelingt. Durch die Nukleoskopie kann eine qualitative Aussage über das Ausmaß der Nukleotomie getroffen werden.
