It means that the disc between L5-S1 has protruded out to one side (not centrally), and is affecting (most likely compressing) the S1 nerve root which is below the level of the herniation (the L5 nerve root has already exited the IVF). From this report I am assuming you are having some sensory or motor problems in your lower limbs?!

What is a central and right paracentral disc herniation of the l5-s1 with impingement on the right nerve rootlet?

Essentially, that means that you have a bulging disc (the paracentral disc herniation) at the level between vertebrae Sacral 1 and Lumbar 5. This bulge is putting pressure on the root nerve on the right side. The root nerve is what comes out from the spinal cord to the area of the body that the nerve goes to.


What is right para central herniation C6?

It is a protrusion (herniation) of disc material near the center of the spine (paracentral), in this case just to the right of center. The C6 designation indicates the herniation is located in the Cervical spine (neck) at the level of the 6th cervical vertebral space (there are a total of seven cervical vertebra -- C1 through C7). A couple of useful reference/education sites are www.spineuniverse.com and www.spine-health.com. Hope this helps!Bunny

What does left paracentral herniation C5-C6 withindents the thecal sac and mild left neuroforaminla narrowing at this level mean?

This seems like a "slipped disc" in the spine around the neck region (cervical spine) which is causing pressure on the surroundings of the spinal cord and nerve routes. The Mild left neuroforaminal narrowing refers to a narrowing of the cavity in the spine where nerves leave the spinal cord. Hope that helps! If in doubt, consult the radiologist or physician who produced this report. Student Doctor
