The patient is a 49-year-old male who was admitted on November 15. He underwent revision laminectomy and stabilization of his lumbar spine with a Dynesys system. The patient tolerated the procedure well and had an uneventful hospital course, except experienced acute pain after the surgery requiring additional physical therapy and pain control. By postoperative day 5, he was tolerating a regular diet, had obtained pain control, and cleared physical therapy. He was subsequently discharged home with written instructions. He is to follow up in 3 weeks after discharge. He was given Percocet and Flexeril for pain and spasms, as needed.

For example, when you discharge a patient from an acute care setting, will a telenursing service assist that individual with staying out of the hospital?

History and Physical

Admit Diagnosis: Recurrent herniated disc

Procedure: Lumbar laminectomy, disc stabilization with Dynesys

History of Present Illness: 49-year-old male with left leg and back pain. Diagnosed with recurrent disc herniation

Past Medical History: Status post laminectomy and diskectomy 2 years ago

Physical Examination

Neck: Supple

Heart: Regular rate and rhythm

Lungs: Clear to auscultation

Neuro: Left leg weakness, numbness, and pain

Skin: No lesions, masses, or rashes

Assessment and Plan: Recurrent HNP LS to S 1

Operative Report

Preoperative Diagnosis: Radiculopathy and degenerative disc disease at LS-S 1 with recurrent disc herniation at LS-S 1

Postoperative Diagnosis: Same

Procedure Performed: Revision LS laminectomy, revision S 1 laminectomy and diskectomy, stabilization of LS to S 1 with flexible rod Dynesys system

Anesthesia: General

Blood Loss: Minimal

Complications: Intraoperative dural tear, which was repaired with watertight seal with interrupted 4-0 Nurolon sutures

Description of the Procedure: Under sterile conditions, the patient was brought to the operating room and was placed under general endotracheal anesthesia and placed in a prone position. Lumbar spine was then prepped and draped in the usual sterile manner with a Betadine prep. A lateral x-ray was obtained with an 18-gauge spinal needle placed for level localization. Based upon the x-ray, a direct posterior approach to the lumbar spine was performed. This was carried down to the transverse process of L5 and the sacral ala bilaterally. After adequate exposure, complete laminectomy was performed in a subperiosteal fashion with a combination Leksell and Kerrison rongeurs at the LS and S 1 levels. Mobilization of the left S 1 and L5 nerve roots was performed, although there was a significant amount of scar tissue. There was a large free LS-S 1 recurrent disc fragment, which was removed with a pituitary rongeur. There was a small dural tear within the axilla of the L5 nerve root repaired with watertight seal with intenupted 4-0 Nurolon sutures. After adequate decompression, attention was brought to stabilization. Using the usual internal and external landmarks, pedicle screws were placed in the L5 and Sl pedicles bilaterally. These were drilled, probed, dilated, and then a combination of 7.2 mm x 40 mm screws and 7.2 mm x 45 mm screws were placed in the L5 and S 1 pedicles bilaterally. AP and lateral x-rays were obtained, noting appropriate placement of the screws. Measuring of the cord device was performed bilaterally. The cord was placed in the usual fashion, tensioned, and then finally tightened. The wound was copiously irrigated with bacitracin solution. No drain was utilized. The fascia was closed with intenupted 0 VICRYL suture. The subcutaneous tissue and skin were closed in three sequential layers. The patient was awakened in the operating room, extubated, and brought to the recovery room in satisfactory condition.
