Latest Technology to Treat Nervous Nerves


You must have heard people suffer from nerve cramps. Depending on how severe the disorder is, the sufferer can feel pain in the spine or neck continuously. In severe conditions, it even makes the sufferer unable to walk.

What is the nerve clamp? In the medical world, the clamping nerve is called Herniated Nucleus Pulposus (HNP). HNP can indeed occur in all parts of the spine. Starting from the lower back to the neck section. Well, there are seven vertebrae around our neck and this is where the handling of HNP is often more challenging because of the tight position between the vertebrae.

Symptoms of nerve clamping in the neck are neck pain that is very disturbing and can limit the mobility of the sufferer. Nervous nerves occur when the contents of the disc or the inter-vertebrae of the spine leak so that it compresses the nerves.

Discus or pads in the spine consist of 2 parts, namely; the annulus fibrosus which is the hard outer part and the nucleus pulposus inside the jelly bearing shape is also known as the mucoprotein gel with the main components in the form of water, collagen, and proteoglycans.

Discus acts as an absorbent shock or shock absorber. Together with two small joints behind the neck, the disc will help humans move their necks. This inner part is by one or various other causes of leakage.

Endoscopic Therapy for Handling Nerve Clamps in the Neck


After the patient is certain to experience nerve clamping in the cervical vertebrae, patients will usually be directed to treatment with drugs such as non-steroidal pain relievers, steroids and rest or bed rest. 

In the past, neurosurgeons had difficulty reaching HNP in this neck. For years medical experts have tried to find various technologies for handling this case. Various surgeries performed on the cervix are considered too high risk and usually make the patient be treated for days.

But in the past two decades, the technology of handling HNP in the neck has continued to grow. Open surgery is becoming obsolete and turning to minimally invasive surgery. One of them is a technique called Percutaneous Endoscopy. But only in 1990, the new technique was introduced to treat HNP in the neck and was called Percutaneous Endoscopic Cervical Discectomy (PECD). It is also often abbreviated as a Cervical Endoscope.

Dr. Mahdian Nur Nasution is a neurosurgeon specialist in Indonesia who has practiced PECD in patients. He did it in March 2018 for the first time at Meilia Cibubur Hospital. "PECD technique adheres to two approaches or techniques, namely anterior (front) and posterior (back). Both are aimed at removing herniation of the spinal joints that causes pressure on the spinal cord. With the help of vision directly through the endoscope camera that is displayed on the screen, "explained Dr. Mahdian Nur Nasution SpBS.

The challenge is indeed not easy so that it can only be applied in Indonesia. "The problem of the high cost of a tool that must be purchased by a doctor or hospital is a problem that must be a common concern," said Dr. Mahdian explained.

Advantages of PECD Endoscopy Compared to Other Techniques

In addition to incisions that are at least 4 mm in length, it can be done only by local anesthesia. The PECD provides better hope than other neck surgical techniques. "The patient's operating time is also shorter, recovery is fast, tissue damage is minimal," said Dr. Mahdian explained.

Until now the team of Dr. Mahdian, which used to be under the umbrella of the Pain and Spine Clinic and has now changed its name to Lamina Pain and Spine Center, has handled 10 cases with a success of 90 percent. The success of this PECD depends on the patient's condition and the severity of nerve damage that occurs.

Now if you experience a clamping nerve you don't need to be afraid of risky surgery. The medical world has found safer PECD techniques.
