Abstract

Iatrogenic pseudomeningocele formation after lumbar or cervical spine surgery is a well-described complication. Two unusual cases of transdural nerve root herniation with subsequent entrapment in the intervertebral space after lumbar disc surgery are presented. The reasons for this rare complication and its treatment are discussed.
