A prolapsed disc occurs when the outer fibres of the intervertebral disc are injured, and the soft material known
as the nucleus pulposus, ruptures out of its enclosed space.
The prolapsed or ruptured disc material can enter the spinal canal, squashing the spinal cord, but more frequently
the spinal nerves.
Herniated discs rarely occur in children, and are most common in young and middle-aged adults. A herniation may
develop suddenly, or gradually over weeks or months.
Spine Fixation is also known as Vertebral fixation, it is a orthopedic surgical procedure in which two or more
vertebrae are anchored to each other through a synthetic "vertebral fixation device", to reduce the
vertebral mobility and thereby avoiding possible damage to your spinal cord and the spinal roots.
