Lumbar spinal stenosis
Stenosis of the lumbar spinal canal is most commonly associated with multilevel degenerative spine disease, although commonly worst at the L4-5 level. Neurogenic claudication is classically described as a poorly localized sense of discomfort and aching pain in the lower back, buttocks, and legs, precipitated by walking and relieved by sitting. Patients may experience numbness or deadness of the limbs, paresthesias, or subjective weakness that is usually bilateral and asymmetric.
