  Purpose

Lumbar zygapophyseal joint cysts can cause lower extremity radiculopathy. These cysts can be cured by a minimally invasive technique: percutaneous cyst distention and rupture

Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: 1
Percutaneous zygapophyseal cyst rupture
Procedure: Percutaneous zygapophyseal cyst rupture
Patients will be treated by introducing a 20G spinal needle in the inferior joint recess of the zygapophyseal joint.1 ml of celestone-chronodose,1 ml of Marcain 5 mg/ml and 1-3 ml of contrast media:Omnipaque 240 will be injected until the cyst ruptures.
