(日) Surgical Treatment of Lumbar Herniated Nucleus Pulposus Combined with Residual Bony Fragment of Apophyseal Ring Fracture in High-Level Athletes : A Report of Two Cases.
(英) In this paper, we present 2 cases of herniated nucleus pulposus (HNP) combined with the residual bony fragment of apophyseal ring fracture. HNP typically exists at the narrow lateral recess formed by the bony fragment, and so it has been reported that symptoms may persist. Case 1 was a 22-year-old man, a high-level javelin thrower and Paralympic athlete. He had a history of persistent pain for 4 years due to HNP, and so we performed surgical removal. Case 2 was a 23-year-old male professional baseball player. He was referred to us only 17 days after the onset of pain and presented with muscle weakness, a feature which may prolong the clinical course in addition other features such as pain. Thus, we performed a comparatively quick intervention of surgical removal. In both cases, we had excellent clinical outcomes and better function and performance. In conclusion, in cases with HNP and apophyseal ring separation, surgical intervention in the comparatively early phase can be recommended, particularly if the patients desire quick return to their original level of activity.
