Prolapse intervertebral disc, an established clinical entity well known to the clinician, is seen quite frequently in our countrymen. This study is being presented keeping in view the disabling nature of this disease which compels most of the victims to stay away from their work and if left untreated cripples them forever. Dandy (1941) makes a mention about paraplegia due to prolapse intervertebral disc. Vorris (1945), Ver Brugghen (1945), Peyton and Simmons (1947), Fairburn and Stewart (1955), Shephard (1959), Wilson (1962), Brown and point (1963), Armstrong (1965), Scott (1965), Tandon and Sankaran (1967), all have referred to this complication. Levy (1967) reviewed the incidence of herniated disc among Africans. Grant (1944), Brown and pont (1963), Naylor (1974), Natarajan, et al. (1979) have published their results of operations in herniated disc.
