The paper aims to assess clinical effect of small incision fenestration for lumbar disc herniation complicated with lumbar spinal stenosis and provide more adequate scientific guiding basis for clinical treatment. In this paper, clinical data of 1200 lumbar disc herniation patients with lumbar spinal stenosis who were hospitalized during June 2014 and June 2015 were retrospectively analyzed. Depending on their different treatment options, the patients were divided into two groups: 550 cases of control group patients underwent conventional surgery, 650 cases of observation group patients received small incision fenestration. The two groups of patient’s operation time, intraoperative blood loss and postoperative hospital stay were recorded in detail. Clinical results of the two groups of surgical treatment were evaluated and compared with visual analog scale pain grade score and lower back pain Japanese orthopaedic association scoring system. The treatment results showed that operation time, postoperative hospital stay and intraoperative blood loss of observation group were significantly less than those of control group. Comparison between groups, p<0.05, statistically significant; visual analog scale score and Japanese orthopaedic association score result showed significant superiority of observation group therapy compared to control group. Statistical difference of p<0.05 is statistically significant. It can thus be known that small incision fenestration enjoys significant clinical effect for lumbar disc herniation complicated with lumbar spinal stenosis is with important clinical promotion value.
