coby219"Intervertebral disc (nucleus pulposus) herniates posterolaterally through annulus fibrosus (outer ring) into central canal due to thin posterior longitudinal ligament and thicker anterior longitudinal ligament along midline of vertebral bodies. Nerve affected is usually below the level of herniation." - first aid 19 p455+5
chj7Adding to coby219, after knowing herniation most commonly occurs posterolaterally, we would most likely choose between B and D. The only reasonable choice from a surgical perspective would be D b/c we would most likely be entering the patient's vertebrae from the back (thus, B would be harder to access).+1
freemanpengQuestion stem said" laminectomy". I just ingored it and kept struggling between lamina(D) and pedicle(B)...... So, it's not about neurosurgery; it's just basic anatomy!+1
