Percutaneous full-endoscopic uniportal decompression for the treatment of symptomatic idiopathic lumbar spinal epidural lipomatosis: Technical note.


Lumbar spinal epidural lipomatosis (SEL) is a rare condition characterized by an excessive accumulation of adipose tissue within the spinal canal, compressing the dura sac and/or nerve roots.
