L5-S1 disc has always been a difficult disc to target by rigid endoscope because of anatominal limitations .These limitation severely hampers transforaminal approach for superiorly migrated disc at L5-S1. We performed percutaneous endoscopic interlaminar lumbar decompression (PEILD) for removal of superiorly migrated sequestrated disc and preserved the functional structures. Through this approach nerve root and dural sleeve were exposed and adequate removal of migrated disc was done, which was also confirmed by immediate post operative MRI. The clinical outcome was evaluated using visual analogue scale (VAS) score and brief pain inventory (BPI) . We obtained excellent results in treating superiorly sequestrated disc at L5-S1 using endoscopic interlaminar angled approach.
