Abstract

Background:The x-ray examination is one of the fundamental diagnostic modalities in patients with low-back-pain. The aim of study was to establish relation between radiological findings and herniation type and its localization. As well, we looked for relation between radiological findings and progression of disc degeneration.Material/Methods: The study enrolled 187 individuals operated due to lumbar disc herniation. In each case the x-ray examination of lumbar spine was performed. Herniation was classified as protrusion, prolapse or disc sequestration. According to localization, herniation was defined as central, lateral or intermediate. Removed discs were histologically evaluated to determine degeneration symptoms. The radiological picture was related to the degeneration of the intervertebral discs.Results: The statistical analysis revealed the only one relation –between traction osteophytes and herniation classified as disc prolapse (p
