Resumo

SHIPLEY, JA. An approach to failed lumbar surgery. SA orthop. j. [online]. 2008, vol.7, n.2, pp. 13-17. ISSN 2309-8309.

With the rising rate of spinal surgery, the need to manage cases of failed operations is on the increase. A systematic approach is essential to identify the causes of persistent or recurrent symptoms, and the first step is a detailed and thorough history and examination. MRI is often the most valuable special investigation. Further surgery is only justified when clinical findings are consistent with significant radiological pathology which can be treated surgically with a probability of success and little risk.
