Chemonukleolyse und andere intradiskale Therapieformen — Ist ihre Anwendung noch berechtigt?

  • A. Hedtmann
Conference paper

Zusammenfassung

Carl Hirsch aus Schweden hatte 1959 die Idee, man müsse den natürlichen Alters- und Degenerationsprozess der Bandscheibe durch Injektion geeigneter Substanzen fördern. Dadurch sollte die Phase degenerationsbedingter, temporärer Instabilität der Bandscheibe beschleunigt durchlaufen und die Phase der reaktiven Teilversteifung des Segments mit wieder erreichter Beschwerdefreiheit schneller erreicht werden.
