[Relationship between the pathogenesis of lumbosacral radiculitis and specific treatment].


On the basis of personal experience in treating 534 patients with sacro-lumbar radiculitis the authors believe it expedient to distinguish the following clinical syndromes: lumbago, radicle neuralgia, radicle neuritis, radicle neuritis with a paralysis of the foot and the caudal syndrome. In their opinion, the main pathogenetical mechanisms of the disease, which facilitates the selection of the methods of treatment should be taken into consideration. It is stressed that a differentiated clinical approach to patients with therapeutically resistent forms of sacro-lumbar radiculitis in the majority of the cases provides good results in medicational and surgical treatment.
