Implantation of Amniotic Membrane To Reduce Postlaminectomy Epidural Adhesions

Postlaminectomy epidural adhesion is implicated as a main cause of ‘‘failed back surgery syndrome’’ and associated with increased risk of complications during revision surgery. Various materials acting as mechanical barriers to reduce fibroblasts infiltration into epidural space have met with limited success. In present research, amniotic membrane (AM) was studied to investigate its effects on reducing epidural scar adhesion after laminectomy in a canine model. Laminectomy sites were created at L-1, L-3, L-5, and L-7 levels in 24 adult mongrel dogs.  Read more…
