Figure 2

Intraoperative images of endoscope-assisted and microscope-assisted tubular surgery. The thecal sac and the disc herniation are visualized in endoscope-assisted surgery (a). After discectomy, the nerve root (asterisk) is free of compression in endoscope-assisted surgery (b). The thecal sac and the disc herniation are visualized in microscope-assisted surgery (c). After discectomy, the nerve root (asterisk) is free of compression in microscope-assisted surgery (d).
