PREVENT A NEW HERNIATION. PRESERVE YOUR DISC.

Discectomy is the most common surgical treatment for herniated disc. During the surgery, part of damaged disc compressing the nerve is removed to relieve the pressure and reduce pain. However, discectomy does not heal the disc, it does not repair the tear in the wall of the disc. In case of large opening (>5mm), your chances of new herniation and another surgery are as high as 27%. Barricaid® Anular Closure closes the hole left in the disc. This reduces the likelihood for a new herniation to occur over time. If you are about to undergo a herniated disc surgery, find out here what Barricaid can do for you.

TREATMENT WITH BARRICAID®

Barricaid anular closure device is implanted following a standard discectomy. During surgery your surgeon reaches the damaged disc from the back of the spine—through the muscles and bone. Once the ruptured portion of the disc is located, your surgeon will remove it and measure the hole left behind. The size of this hole is very important: if it’s bigger than 5mm, you are at greater risk of a new herniation to occur.
