Abstract

In recent years intradiscal oxygen-ozone therapy has proved increasingly useful. From December 1997 to August 2000 we treated 444 patients, 240 men and 204 women, by intradiscal and paraspinal injection of an ozone mixture for a total of 723 treatments. We describe our findings in 191 patients who underwent treatment in a single session with a six-month follow-up examination. As a whole, our excellent - good results are only slightly inferior to those obtainable with enzymatic chemonucleolysis. The introduction of intradiscal oxygen-ozone therapy into our clinical practice has proved beneficial.
