Most human lumbar HNPs occur to the right or left of the midline posterior longitudinal ligament (PLL). The PLL reinforces the central portion of the posterior annulus, resulting in fewer direct central HNPs compared with canine HNP, which can often be more centralized. The lateralization of HNP in humans results in fewer instances of cauda equina syndrome than in dogs with L6–L7 and L7–S1 disc herniations, where there is sometimes more centralized displacement (see Chapter 32). In humans, a standard open lumbar discectomy with examination of the involved nerve root is the most common surgical procedure performed for patients having symptoms of back and leg discomfort.
