Following an accident or repeated effort, the ring (located on the outside of the intervertebral disc) may be damaged. Herniated disc is a shift of the nucleus pulposus through this weakened area to the outside.
Such a prolapse, if it oppresses the nerve root exiting the spinal cord at a specific level, can cause pain in this area (spine pain, back pain, neck pain), which is often violent and lancinating. The symptoms can lead to paralysis, muscular atrophy and movement disorders.
DISCOGEL® is a gel implant impervious to X-ray based on ethanol and cellulose-derived products, injected percutaneously to the nucleus pulposus.
It's operation is based on two activities: mechanical, which causes the migration of the fluid inside the disc thanks to the hydrophilic properties of DISCOGEL® and decompression of neural structures and biochemical blocking the receptors that generate pain.
Result: immediate pain reduction in the vast majority of patients.
